Public Workshop on Architectural Upgrades to the WRRF
City begins public involvement for input on themes and approaches
PLATTSBURGH, NY Dec. 6th, 2019 – The City of Plattsburgh is looking for public input regarding proposed architectural improvements to the Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) at 6:30 pm on Thursday, December 12th in the City Hall Community Room.
Over ten years ago, the NYS Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) provided funds to study how to mitigate potential impacts from the WRRF on the full use and enjoyment of the waterfront. Those studies resulted in concepts for implementing noise, odor, and aesthetic improvements.
More recently, the City was awarded roughly $25,000,000 in grants and financing from the NYS Water Infrastructure Improvement Act (WIIA) to implement upgrades including some of the mitigation measures for noise and odor improvements that are entering design phases.
The design aesthetic (architectural) improvements are in the planning phase and ready for public participation for an opportunity to make the WRRF into a destination that will attract people to the waterfront and make a community statement about Plattsburgh.
This public workshop on December 12th will be the first in a series of workshops to begin community involvement for developing architectural upgrades to the WRRF.
The purpose of the workshops will be to review the goals of this project, the process that will unfold, and to generate ideas for themes and approaches relating to the architectural improvements of the WRRF
