About this event

Climate change isn’t coming, it’s here.

Climate change is an emergency, and it will only get worse over time.

Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency (LMCR) is the City’s strategy to adapt Lower Manhattan to climate change for this generation and the next. As part of this effort, the City is working to identify the right resiliency projects for the Financial District (“FiDi”) and South Street Seaport (the “Seaport”) neighborhoods and advancing the FiDi-Seaport Climate Resilience Master Plan (Climate Resilience Plan) to protect the area’s many essential functions for the region.

We invite you to join us at the Financial District and Seaport Climate Resilience Master Plan’s Virtual Open House to learn more about the plan, and to provide input on what you envision for the future of Lower Manhattan. We will explore why the area’s low-lying topography, dense infrastructure, and complex waterfront and maritime uses make it particularly challenging to protect and adapt. Through ongoing discussions around project constraints and opportunities, we will work together to build a plan that provides flood protection infrastructure and responds to the community’s input and needs.
