The Battery Park City Authority will be preparing an environmental impact statement (EIS) to analyze the potential environmental impacts of its South Battery Park City Resiliency Project, an integrated coastal flood risk management system from the Museum of Jewish Heritage, through Wagner Park, across Pier A Plaza, and along the northern border of the Historic Battery.

As part of the this process, the Authority has prepared a Draft Scoping Document, which is available for public review and comment through October 29, 2021.

Public comment, as well as answers to all questions received will be included in a Final Scoping Document to be completed later this fall. Comments/questions can be submitted by email, traditional mail, or over the phone as follows:
