The de Blasio administration will form a community advisory group for the East Side Coastal Resiliency (ESCR) project, intended to protect vulnerable communities on Manhattan’s Lower East Side from large coastal storms and the chronic impacts of sea-level rise.
“The ESCR project will protect generations of New Yorkers from the devastating impacts of climate change,” said Jainey Bavishi, director of the Mayor’s Office of Resiliency. “This advisory board creates a valuable new forum for the community to provide feedback on the project’s design and implementation.”
Comprised of local stakeholders, the advisory group will be convened in advance of the groundbreaking and will serve as a forum for continual community engagement. The city will report to this body on design and construction progress both before and after the start of construction, through the completion of the project at the end of 2025.
