Poughkeepsie Southern Waterfront Survey
On March 1st, the Poughkeepsie Common Council created a task force to explore the redevelopment of a publicly-owned, 13-acre site on Poughkeepsie’s southern waterfront at the end of Rinaldi Blvd. The land would nearly double the amount of riverfront space in our city. The task force is seeking public input in order to provide recommendations to the Council and Mayor about the use of this land. Thank you for taking a few minutes to answer this survey. Your feedback will ensure that the redevelopment of the site reflects the needs of the Poughkeepsie community.

Southern Waterfront Redevelopment Task Force
On April 5, 2021, the Common Council appointed a group of 11 people to the Southern Waterfront Redevelopment Task Force. This task force has been appointed to make recommendations to the council and city administration regarding public access improvements and other redevelopment guidelines for the former DeLaval site. We will have only 90 days to review documents, receive public comment, and gather other information to make these recommendations. All of the meetings will be public and by Zoom.
The Southern Waterfront Redevelopment Task Force welcomes public comment at our meetings and believes public engagement will be critical to fostering a welcoming and accessible waterfront for all to enjoy. Anyone wishing to comment at the meeting may raise their hand to speak during the public comment portion of the meeting and will have up to four minutes to speak.
We encourage people wishing to speak to send written comments ahead of time or after the meeting to the City Chamberlain at [email protected] for inclusion in the meeting minutes. All meetings will be recorded and available afterward on the city’s website.
For any questions, please contact the City Chamberlain at [email protected]. Thank you for your interest in the southern waterfront.
