St. Lawrence County encourages all interested parties to join a virtual Public Workshop on Tuesday, June 29th, 6:00-7:30 pm. The workshop will focus on ways our North Country shoreline communities can adapt to fluctuating water levels in Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River.
The June 29th workshop is an opportunity for the public to engage with the NYS Department of State on its Coastal Lakeshore Economy and Resiliency (CLEAR) initiative. CLEAR is intended to help communities adapt to changing water levels, both high and low. The outcome of the CLEAR initiative will be community resiliency strategies and long-term plans to protect property, natural areas, and infrastructure. The CLEAR initiative will build on local plans and priorities as well as the 2019 Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative (REDI).
Public engagement throughout the process will ensure that the CLEAR plan reflects local needs and opportunities. The DOS project team is committed to building local capacity to adapt and thrive in the face of changing lake conditions. Your input will help meet that goal.
