The Town of Oswego has been awarded funding from NYS for the development of a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) through New York State’s Environmental Protection Fund under Title 11, Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (EPF LWRP). The Central New York Regional Planning & Development Board (CNY RPDB) will assist the Town and a local Waterfront Advisory Committee (WAC) in developing the program.

The LWRP Project
What is an LWRP?
An LWRP is a comprehensive land and water use program that expresses a vision for the Town's waterfront area and provides the means to achieve that vision.

The Advisory Committee
A Waterfront Advisory Committee (WAC) is required for all communities undertaking development of a LWRP. The WAC needs to be appointed early on in the process to assist Regional Planning staff with developing the LWRP. The committee should be comprised of local stakeholders recognized as having the ability to get things done and having a vested interest in the future of the community. There will be 16 committee meetings and 3 public meetings throughout the course of the planning process. Committee members will be expected to attend and participate in these meetings.
Visit our Announcements page for information on the planning in progress and scheduling for related public meeting, workshops and surveys.
We encourage you to be involved and participate in upcoming public outreach sessions. We want to hear from you about your waterfront!
