Save the Dates: Upcoming East River Esplanade Community Meetings

You are invited to lend your voice at a series of community meetings to discuss improvements to the East River Esplanade (60th – 125th Streets) hosted by CIVITAS and Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects.
The series of meetings is kicked off with a listening session, and then will focus on opportunities and constraints that embrace issues such as Esplanade dimensions, land use, environmental concerns, regulatory parameters and recreational considerations.
Building on the visionary designs in CIVITAS’s Reimagining the Waterfront exhibition, Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects will develop a study analyzing existing conditions of the Esplanade in order to frame the strategic opportunities for a better park. These visioning meetings will establish specific long and short-term goals that will be incorporated into their recommendations.

These meetings are very important, especially if you are an Esplanade park user! Please join us – and spread the word - if you want to share your thoughts for the future of our community’s waterfront.

All meetings will be held in the evening. Specific times and locations will are TBD. Please save the following dates:
Tuesday, May 6 (I. listening session) 
Tuesday, June 24 (II. visioning & goal-setting)
Monday, September 22 (III. a way forward)

Please RSVP to or by calling 212-996-0745 if you are able to participate in this series of meetings.
