City of Binghamton, New York

Local Waterfront Revitalization Program

The City of Binghamton has completed preparation of a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP), which is a locally prepared, comprehensive land and water use plan for its natural, public, and developed waterfront resources. The Binghamton LWRP provides a comprehensive framework within which critical waterfront issues can be addressed and planned waterfront improvement projects can be pursued and implemented.

The City of Binghamton prepared its LWRP with assistance from the New York State Department of State and in accordance with the New York State Waterfront Revitalization of Coastal Areas and Inland Waterways Act and the New York State Coastal Management Program.

The City of Binghamton LWRP is a comprehensive inland waterway management program that is based on the policies of the New York State Coastal Management Program. The Binghamton City Council adopted their LWRP on December 5, 2005. The Binghamton LWRP was then approved by the New York State Secretary of State on December 23, 2005. With State approval, the Binghamton LWRP will serve to coordinate State actions needed to achieve the City’s goals for it’s waterfront area.

The Binghamton LWRP refines and supplements the State Coastal Management Program by incorporating local needs and objectives. It contains seven sections and appendices.

The Waterfront Advisory Committee is responsible for reviewing projects within the boundaries of the LWRP.  To find out more information on the Waterfront Advisory Committee click here
