Climate-Adaptive Design in New York's Hudson Valley

Date: 6/16/2021 - 7/23/2021

Type: RFPs / RFQs

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): New York


Approximately $125,000 in funding is available to design a project to reduce shoreline or stormwater risk in one or more of the communities of the Village of Catskill, City of Hudson, City of Kingston, or Village and Town of Ossining, New York. Each of these communities participated in the Climate-adaptive Design studio, a program which links Cornell University graduate and undergraduate students in landscape architecture with flood-risk Hudson Riverfront communities to explore nature-based design alternatives for climate resilient and connected waterfront areas.

Eligible projects must reduce risks from shoreline or stormwater flooding and erosion while enhancing habitat value, which may include options for strategic relocation, resilient waterfront structures and infrastructure, natural and nature-based shoreline design, and stormwater green infrastructure.

There will be an informational conference call via WebEx for interested applicants on June 30, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. The deadline for proposals is July 23, 2021 at noon.
