Newtown Creek Vision Plan

Over the past year, NCA worked closely with our partners at Riverkeeper and Perkins+Will to create the Newtown Creek Vision plan, a 150 page report chronicling priority issues and 85 proposed projects to address Remediation, Restoration, Recreation and Resilience. The report builds upon decades of planning and visioning efforts by numerous community members and organizations; framing ideas in the wake of upcoming Superfund remediation and Clean Water improvements. We look forward to continuing these planning conversations with local residents, businesses, agencies and elected officials.

We want to formally welcome our new interns Marlon and Miles! Some of their own words and expectations for upcoming time with NCA:

“The work being done here in the present is in an effort to reverse these environmentally harmful things that were done and are still going on to a lesser extent. I personally enjoy being out working with my hands and observing the environment around me and I hope my time at the Newtown Creek Alliance teaches me how to do these things in a more scientific way.” ...
