LOWER EAST SIDE — How do you feel about plans to make the East River waterfront more resilient against extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy?
The city wants to know — so it’s inviting residents to give their input at one of three workshops later this month.
The meetings will allow the community to give feedback on preliminary concepts and the design development of the city's large-scale flood protection system, which will stretch from Montgomery Street to East 23rd Street.
Each session, the first of which takes place July 28, will focus on a particular section of the waterfront and include a short presentation followed by interactive activities, according to the mayor's office, whose Office of Recovery and Resiliency is implementing the project.
The schedule is as follows:
► July 28, 6 p.m. at the Stein Senior Center at 204 E. 23rd St. — The meeting will focus on the waterfront between East 14th and East 23rd streets.
► July 29, 7 p.m. at the Church of St. Brigid, 119 Avenue B — The focus will be on the area between East Houston and East 14th streets. Attendees are asked to enter on East Eighth Street.
► July 30, 7 p.m. at the Manny Cantor Center 197 E. Broadway — The workshop will focus on the waterfront between East Houston and Montgomery streets.
Doors will open a half-hour before every meeting. All locations are ADA accessible. Spanish, Mandarin and Catonese interpreters will be available at all the workshops, according to the city. A Fujianese translator will also attend the July 30 workshop. Dinner will be provided.
