Kingston Waterfront Design Open House on October 26
“Weaving the Waterfront” Will Present Four Upcoming Projects
KINGSTON, NY — Mayor Noble and the Offices of Grants Management and Sustainability are pleased to announce an outdoor open house event, Weaving the Waterfront: Kingston, on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 11:00am to 4:00pm. The open house will inform and engage the community about four major projects that will improve and protect the Kingston Waterfront:
Weaving the Waterfront: Kingston will allow the community to be involved in creating a vision for specific designs in the Kingston Waterfront. The event will include: a self-guided walking or bicycling tour with exhibit stops staffed by the project design teams; free boat tours to the Lighthouse; and trolley rides to and from Kingston Point. Information regarding the projects and the tours will be available throughout the day in the Kingston Home Port and Education Center also known as the Clearwater Barn at 50 Rondout Landing.
“This event is a unique opportunity for the public to actively explore, learn about, and participate in the future of the Rondout Creek and Kingston Point waterfront and park land,” said Mayor Noble. “We are working hard to design a resilient and active waterfront and want the community’s input and feedback. These important improvements will benefit our community for generations to come.”
Weaving the Waterfront will bring together engineering and design teams from McLaren Engineering Group, Weston & Sampson, Supermass Studio and Brinnier & Larios PC and City staff to inform the public about the current design projects along the Kingston Waterfront. Additional projects affecting the waterfront, including the Kingston Point Rail Trail Phase 2, Hudson Landing Promenade and TR Gallo Park Improvements, will be exhibited in the Kingston Home Port and the Trolley Museum.
