The purpose of the Baldwin Downtown and Commercial Corridor Resiliency Study is to develop an implementable plan that ensures economic and physical resiliency within the Hamlet of Baldwin. The study will consist of goals that focus on green infrastructure improvements, as well as commercial and mixed-use development opportunities. Active participation and collaboration by municipal officials, local/regional agencies, community stakeholders, residents and the general public will be essential to reaching these goals.
The study was a recommendation of The Baldwin NY Rising Community Reconstruction Plan and is funded by a grant from the New York State Governor's Office of Storm Recovery. The NY Rising Community Reconstruction (NYRCR) Program is a participatory recovery and resiliency initiative established to provide assistance to 124 communities severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene, and Tropical Storm Lee.
Project Goals and Actions
How do we get to an economically competitive and physically resilient downtown Baldwin?
Community input will play a large role!
The process, which began in Spring of 2016, is expected to last 12 months, and during each phase, community engagement will be a key component to ensure the community's priorities, values, and vision are reflected in this comprehensive study.
Below is a description of the process, which will include a variety of opportunities for public involvement, as well as an outline of analyses and ultimate recommendations.
