Do you have ideas, advice, perspective or expertise to share about access to the Hudson River Waterfront in Rensselaer County? Come join a half-day boat cruise aboard the Dutch Apple and provide some insight to the team developing a Waterfront Access Plan.
The boat tour will depart the Dutch Apple Cruise dock on Broadway in Albany on Tuesday, June 27th at 9:00am sharp. Boarding starts at 8:30am. To RSVP, contact Jim Levy (but don’t delay, space is limited!)
The Rensselaer County Hudson River Access Plan, advanced with support from the Rensselaer Land Trust, aims to provide an inventory of existing public access sites on the Rensselaer County Hudson River shoreline, conduct outreach and research for additional potential sites with shoreline communities, and make recommendations and design suggestions for improving access for people of all abilities, improved storm resiliency, and adequacy of facilities for user groups. The study will provide a comprehensive look at ways to “get people to the river” for recreation, and to have those facilities contribute to storm resiliency. RLT will partner with, has the support of, and will actively engage the municipalities along the shoreline in developing this plan.
