Climate Change Isn't Coming, It's Here
Elected Officials and Community Boards play the critical role of representing local residents in the planning process and advancing the plan’s implementation. The quarterly Community Boards 1 and 3 and elected officials briefings are to ensure that key stakeholders are informed of the project process and key decisions so that they are engaged in the process. Elected officials for our project area include Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Council Member Margaret Chin (City Council District 1), State Senator Brian Kavanagh (Senate District 26), State Assembly Member Yuh-Line Niou (Assembly District 65), U.S. Congressional Representative Jerold Nadler (Congressional District 10), and U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.
We briefed the elected officials in September 2019, January 2020, and September 2020, and Community Board 1 in October 2019 and October 2020.
