Proposed Action Plan Amendments

Proposed Action Plan 13

New York City has completed a proposed amendment to its plan for the $4.21 billion in Federal disaster aid from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help with recovery from Hurricane Sandy. The proposed amendment is a detailed description of the East Side Coastal Resiliency project, which was an award of the Rebuild By Design competition.

This amendment includes the Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA) and description of the proposed project. The proposed project area begins on the south at Montgomery Street and extends north to East 25th Street with inland segments along these streets. Within this proposed project area, the City is proposing to install a flood protection system that is integrated with City parkland and streets. The proposed alternative designs involve a combination of berms (or "bridging berms"), floodwalls, and deployable systems. Additionally, the proposed action would improve and enhance waterfront open space resources, including East River and Stuyvesant Cove Parks and improve related City infrastructure.

Proposed Action Plan 14

New York City has completed a proposed amendment to its plan for the $4.21 billion in Federal disaster aid from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help with recovery from Hurricane Sandy. The proposed amendment is a detailed description of the Hunts Point Resiliency project.

In June 2014, HUD awarded New York City $20 million through its Rebuild by Design (RBD) competition for the Hunts Point Lifelines conceptual proposal for continued study, planning and community engagement, as well as, for the design and construction of a pilot project. RBD seeks to promote innovative design in resilience projects and incorporate community engagement in the rebuilding process. To provide financial support, the City committed an additional $25 million in federal Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds.

Substantial Action Plan Amendment 14 identifies the preferred energy resiliency pilot project that will be implemented with HUD CDBG-DR funds. The Hunts Point Resiliency project will provide reliable and resilient energy to critical local and citywide facilities in the Hunts Point peninsula during emergency events such as flooding and power outages.

This amendment includes the Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA) and description of the proposed project.
