Red Hook IFPS Public Meeting

The second Red Hook IFPS meeting was held at the Miccio Center in Red Hook on Thursday, April 7! Specific challenges of reducing flood risk in Red Hook and potential interventions were outlined and discussed with the community. Many of the intervention approaches, such as elevated street planters and bike lanes, landscaped berms, different types of seawalls, and deployable gates are being testing by other flood-prone cities around the world. The community discussed how the plan might protect and enhance, rather than detract, from their quality of life. Another public meeting will be held in June.
