Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) Update 2015

Waterfront Advisory Committee

Peekskill's Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) is a community-prepared plan that provides policy and land use recommendations for the City's waterfront.  The City's last LWRP Update was completed in 2004 (click here).  The City of Peekskill, with the help of local residents, business owners and civic leaders, is now undergoing a public process to update the City's LWRP.
