1) What is an LWRP?

New York State’s approach to managing waterfront areas recognizes that while State government can promote development and provide protection for critical resources and environments, municipalities are in the best position to determine their own waterfront objectives and to adapt to statewide approaches to specific local needs. Thus, the State encourages waterfrontcommunities prepare Local Waterfront Revitalization Programs (an “LWRP”). By preparing an LWRP, community stakeholders have the opportunity to evaluate local waterfront resources, develop goals and a comprehensive strategy for the best use of those resources, proposed future projects, and adopt a local program that will guide appropriate development.

The Village of Tivoli last prepared an LWRP in 1991, which is long out-dated and needs to be modernized to address the issues facing the Village today. Over the past two years, the Village’s Waterfront Advisory Committee has been identifying key resources and opportunities within the Village, in preparation for community meetings with residents, business owners, and other stakeholders and partners, in order to develop a comprehensive plan for the Village.
