Survey: Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP)

The City of Poughkeepsie is updating its primary waterfront policy document – the Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) – and we want to hear from you!  Please click below and take a few minutes to answer questions about Poughkeepsie’s waterfront, how you presently interact with it and how the waterfront could be better.  Even if you don’t live near the waterfront, we want to hear your opinion because the waterfront is an important resource for everyone.  Thank you for your help on this project!

LWRP Public Workshop Recap – December 5, 2018

On December 5th, 2018, the City of Poughkeepsie hosted the first public information workshop for the Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) update. Attendees heard about the LWRP program, what goes into the document itself, possible expansion of the LWRP boundary, and had an opportunity to ask questions and speak with experts about their vision for the waterfront and about specific challenges, opportunities and new ideas or priorities.
