A Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) consists of a planning document prepared by a community, and the program established to implement the plan. An LWRP may be comprehensive and address all issues that affect a community’s entire waterfront, or it may address the most critical issues facing a significant portion of its waterfront. In 2007 Sodus Point adopted its LWRP as the comprehensive plan for the Village.
Q: What is a LWRP?
A: A Local Waterfront Revitalization Program is a locally prepared, comprehensive land and water use program for a community’s natural, public, working waterfront, and developed coastal area. It provides a comprehensive structure within which critical coastal issues can be addressed.
Q: What are the benefits of preparing a LWRP?
A: Benefits to a community preparing an LWRP include clear direction, technical assistance, State and federal consistency, and financial assistance, including State and Federal Grants. It can significantly increase a community’s ability to attract private and public resources to advance a community’s vision and respect the unique cultural and natural characteristics of its waterfront.
More information about the preparation of an LWRP can be found at the DOS office of planning and development. (click here)
