The City of Jamestown Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) is a locally prepared comprehensive land and water use plan for the City’s natural, public, and developed waterfront resources along the Chadakoin River. An LWRP is prepared with assistance from the New York State Department of State (NYS DOS) in accordance with the New York State Waterfront Revitalization of Waterfront Areas and Inland Waterways Act (NYS Executive Law Article 42). The LWRP provides a framework within which critical waterfront issues can be addressed, and planned waterfront improvement projects can be pursued and implemented.
Since State agency actions must be consistent with an approved LWRP, Article 42 requires that the public and any potentially affected State and regional agencies be given the opportunity to comment on the proposed program. For this purpose, the City of Jamestown Draft LWRP is available online at Draft City of Jamestown Local Waterfront Redevelopment Program.
