Purpose of a Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan for Willsboro

The purpose of the Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan (LWRP) is to outline a vision for Willsboro’s waterfront which includes Lakes Champlain, streams, rivers and tributaries, set forth policies and a management structure to implement the program, and identify key projects that will increase access to the waterfront, promote recreational opportunities as well as preserve the land for future generations. The LWRP is a program of New York State’s Department of State (DOS). Willsboro received LWRP grant funding under Title 11 of the NYS Environmental Protection Fund in 2018  to conduct a community visioning process and craft a plan. 

Key elements of the LWRP include:

  • Development Policies
  • Flooding and Erosion Policies
  • Historic and Scenic Resources Policies
  • Agricultural Lands Policy
  • Waterfront Access Recommendations
  • Harbor Management Plan
  • Funding recommendations for implementation of the ideas generated from the LWRP process
The LWRP will also recommend specific land uses by sub-area. The survey is the first of several activities designed to engage the community in a conversation about the future of Willsboro. Community input on the plan's vision, goals, and proposed projects, is a key part of the process.  
 
A committee of 8 community members, town, and county staff will review the survey findings and use them to inform the process and the LWRP document. 

Please note that the survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete (and it will time out if not completed in one session) and that all responses are anonymous. 

Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas and vision of the future of Willsboro.
