Team: NP&V and EMWPC

Nautilus' Role: Sustainability Planning, Community Participation Process and Waterfront Urban Design

Like many riverfront towns with historic waterfronts, the Village of Haverstraw has tremendous potential to revitalize its waterfront and downtown as lively, inclusive and sustainable centers for commerce, culture and recreation. With one of the longest publicly-accessible riverfronts in the Hudson River Valley, Haverstraw decided to update both its Comprehensive Plan and LWRP simultaneously.

The result of the project is a set of unified documents that sets the Village on a course for sustainable and authentic development in a climate resilient framework. The plans will guide sustainable growth for the Village by shifting to a greener economy, protecting natural resources, reducing climate vulnerabilities, improving energy efficiency, and developing in an inclusive and vibrant way. The documents also encourage a dense downtown that is walkable and economically robust while capitalizing on its historic Main Street and preserving its fabric of human-scaled buildings.

Nautilus' role on the team was to oversee waterfront planning; design and lead the community outreach process and plan conducted in both English and Spanish; provide modal-modal transportation planning; and incorporate sustainability into all aspects of the planning documents.
