A RENEWED VISION: These illustrations imagine how Sidney might use sustainable green infrastructure to mitigate flooding. Our renewed vision needs to consider:​​

  • How should vacant land be transformed?

  • What heritage and cultural histories can we share?

  • Which areas are best suited to hold floodwater?

  • What does our natural ecosystem need to thrive?

  • How can we conserve spaces for recreation, entertainment and education?

  • Which local government, academic, nonprofit, and private sector partners want to help?

A New Land & Water Strategy 

Sidney’s new Waterfront Plan for the Susquehanna riverfront will help the Village to adapt to change and meet challenges with resilience.

New flood warning gauges are critical to keeping Sidney safe!

about the LWRP.

A new land and water strategy for Sidney’s Susquehanna riverfront is being developed under a grant provided by New York State Department of State (DOS). Three community events will be planned to seek input and build consensus. The format and schedule for the events is to be determined. The project will develop a full formal Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (See NYS DOS Office of Planning and Development) including the following components:

  • Waterfront Revitalization Area (WRA) Boundary

  • Inventory and Analysis

  • Local Waterfront Revitalization Program Policies

  • Proposed Land and Water Uses and Proposed Projects

  • Techniques for Local Implementation of the Program

  • Federal and State Actions and Programs Likely to Affect Implementation of the LWRP

  • Local Commitment and Consultation

  • State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR)

  • Draft and Final Document
