MWA's Twelve Point Plan for Preparing for Sea Level Rise for New York City and the New York-New Jersey Region


General Assembly Meeting Notes


The waterfront communities of the metropolitan region couldn't have had a more pointed reminder than Hurricane Sandy: Forward-thinking public policy to protect our waterfront is critical to our future health and prosperity.

The General Assembly was scheduled to take place on November 14th, weeks before Sandy.  On November 14, days after unprecedented -- but foreseen -- damage from storm surge, the need to address our shoreline infrastructure is imperative.

The results of our work at the General Assembly will help develop a progressive waterfront policy that MWA will use to influence the platforms for those who seek elected office and to inform and finalize MWA's new strategic plan.
