City Council supports amending Downtown Municipal Harbor Plan
During this week’s Council meeting, the Council adopted a resolution in support of amending the Downtown Municipal Harbor Plan, which outlines planning for the City’s 42-acre downtown waterfront. The Downtown Waterfront Municipal Harbor Plan was approved just over three years ago, and the planning process began over a decade ago yet does not accurately represent the full scale and scope of climate resiliency data and planning that has been developed in the last few years.
“If removing [the plan] completely is not an option then certainly we should be moving to amend it. Amend it to make sure that it’s reflecting of where we are as a City when we’re dealing with racial awareness and equity. Amend it because we need to be talking about environmental justice. Amend it because climate change was not part of the original plan,” said Councilor Edwards, who sponsored the resolution.
