Staten Island Urban Center invites you to a presentation and community conversation on the waterfront, Tompkinsville Park, and recreation opportunities in support of Our Urban Town: Reimagining Our Waterfront Community. As an underdeveloped part of the borough, the North Shore is in need of a new econometric plan for the future that considers deeper socioeconomic issues including poverty, lack of affordable housing, limited access to recreation and park facilities, education inequities, health disparities, and numerous neighborhood environmental issues.
This session will feature a presentation from community artists and leaders followed by a facilitated community visioning conversation about how to advance priorities for local open space, recreation opportunities, and parks.
This community presentation and conversation is the third event in a series of conversations and workshops as part of the Livable Neighborhoods Program (LNP). LNP, a program of the Municipal Art Society of New York, helps local leaders develop the knowledge and tools that they need to participate effectively in public land use review processes and engage in creative, community-based visioning and advocacy. By registering for this workshop, you will also be registered and notified about all upcoming workshops and discussions in this series.
Thank you for joining the conversation.
LNP is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
Staten Island Urban Center events are born from our foundational vision and continual pursuit of thrivability, cultural equity, self-determination and independence.
