Hudson River Access Plan PressReleasePicThe Rensselaer Land Trust is undertaking the Rensselaer County Hudson River Access Plan and is looking for public input and feedback.

SURVEY

What is the Rensselaer County Hudson River Access Plan?

The Plan will provide an inventory of existing public access sites on the Rensselaer County Hudson River shoreline and through outreach, research, and public engagement, identify additional potential sites along the shoreline for access to the Hudson River. The plan will include recommendations and design suggestions for improving access for people of all abilities, improved storm resiliency, and adequacy of facilities for all user groups.

What is the Goal of the Plan?

The goal is “To provide a County-wide planning document that can be used to support and advance the implementation of Hudson River Access Projects that have the support of municipalities and user groups, and improve accessibility and storm resiliency.”

This project is being undertaken by the Rensselaer Land Trust with funding provided by a grant from the Hudson River Estuary Program of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Technical work is being undertaken by Planning4Places, LLC with assistance from Weston & Sampson, Inc.

How can the Public Provide Input?

In addition to talking with the consultant team at some local events such as farmers markets and festivals this summer, a short online survey has been developed to collect input on a range of topics related to river access. To provide your input please click on the following link:
