SOUTH BPC RESILIENCY PROJECT: PUBLIC SCOPING MEETING

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.
