Village of Homer Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP)
- What is the LWRP?
- An LWRP is a comprehensive land and water use program that expresses a vision for the waterfront area and provides the means to achieve that vision. An LWRP is the only planning and regulatory tool that allows a local community to refine Statewide policies to apply to the local situation. LWRP’s may be prepared by municipalities in the State, which includes cities, towns and villages.
A new or amended LWRP is reviewed by local, state, and federal agencies and once approved, the LWRP becomes the basis for aligning local, state, and federal actions needed to achieve community goals for the waterfront. This is extraordinary authority available to a municipal government given the sovereignty of the state and federal governments. Once the LWRP is approved, both state and local agencies must align their proposed actions with the LWRP policies. Competitive funding through New York State’s Environmental Protection Fund (Title 11) is available to support the development of LWRPs.
By preparing an LWRP, community stakeholders take the opportunity to evaluate local waterfront resources, develop goals and a comprehensive strategy for the best use of those resources, identify ways in which the community can reduce risk to community assets and make them more resilient to future threats and natural disasters, propose future land and water uses, and put in place a local program that will guide the community in attracting appropriate development to the waterfront area while planning for sustainability. LWRPs also provide the organizational structure, local laws, and projects to achieve the plan.
