Newtown Creek Vision Plan

Newtown Creek Vision Plan

In 2018, NCA, Riverkeeper and Perkins+Will launched 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. Read the full plan here.

For the last 20 years we’ve been advocating for the remediation of the legacy pollution remaining from the industrialization of Newtown Creek both in the creek and in the surrounding land. During this week’s journey through the archives we’ll highlight a small handful of the innumerable documents and advocacy work that the community has navigated through in the past 20 years to ensure that action on these polluted sites is taken and our community’s health is prioritized. Newtown Creek was designated a federal Superfund in 2010, and over the past 12 years community members have spent untold numbers of hours to understand the extent of contamination and advocate for a thorough cleanup that protects human and ecological health. Endless data, complicated acronyms, revised comment letters, and monthly CAG meetings - it can be a frustrating and slow process, but a necessary one to ensure that a proper cleanup for one of the country’s dirtiest waterways is achieved. The fight for protecting human health around Newtown Creek began many decades ago and has involved numerous community members in and outside of NCA. Despite progress on specific cleanups, like the Greenpoint Oil Spill (thanks to community organizing, legal action, and leadership from NY State), and the numerous health studies conducted over the years, there are still many unanswered questions and ongoing investigations into seriously polluted sites surrounding the waterway. This includes the Meeker Ave Plumes, the National Grid site, and dozens of other areas where the contamination of our soils (and groundwater) can have direct impacts on human health. In recognition of the value for community advocacy we are very excited to celebrate three extraordinary honorees at our Tidal Toast benefit on October 20th! Come raise a glass and celebrate #20yearsofNCA with us.Ticket link in bio.

From 11-2pm we’ll be working both in the pollinator meadow and park space, as well as along Commercial Street to pick up any trash before it blows into the creek. Lend a hand and enjoy these last bits of the season’s nice weather getting dirty and touching plants with your neighbors 🍂This cleanup is hosted in partnership with City Councilmember Lincoln Rester (thanks for this spiffy flyer!), with compost and trash pickup supported by DSNY.

During this week’s look back on #20yearsofNCA we focus on community planning by highlighting three specific efforts to outline paths forwarding in restoring and revitalizing this long neglected waterway. The Brownfield Opportunity Area (slides 1-3) was completed in 2012 as a partnership between NCA, @GMDC and @Riverkeeper. The BOA report and appendix (282 pages in total) utilized extensive property surveying and stakeholder outreach, as part of a community-based planning process focused on the cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated sites along Newtown Creek. The Newtown Creek Vision Plan (slides 4-5) was led by Riverkeeper and NCA with design and planning support from Perkins+Will. The 2018 report outlined 85 different project ideas that could greatly improve the Creek in the coming decades as Superfund remediation and CSO reductions advance. Many of the projects from the Plan continue to advance and evolve, including the @dutchkillsloop. Slide 6 shows a recently completed rendering by @intervalprojects of public access and salt marsh restoration along 29th Street near @laguardia College. For years, the city-owned North Henry Street shoreline has been identified as an area ideal for restoration and access. In 2010 an eco-art proposal entitled The Green Eggs Wetland Park was developed by Deborah Masters, Jackie Brookner and Kate Zidar. Although funding was not granted at the time, NCA began a more thorough community planning process (slides 8+9) for the site in 2014 (funded via @gcefund) outlining more detailed plans for shoreline restoration. After years of work with design firm @terrain-nyc (slide 10, 2016), @laguardia College and Nelson, Pope & Voorhis - the project is now advancing thanks to generous support from @nysdec and @cityparksfoundation. We look forward to sharing more info on project timeline and finalized drawings in the coming months! Find all three of these Community-led Planning reports on our website for further in-depth reading! And don’t forget to come join us on October 20th to celebrate 20 years of NCA at our Tidal Toast!
