The Town of Islip is taking the first step of a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program focused on West Sayville, Sayville and Bayport that will be funded by a New York State grant.
A Request for Proposals (RFP), obtained by Patch, states the revitalization program will focus on community waterfront land use issues, public access to the shore and water quality south of and inclusive of Montauk Highway as well as the Mill Pond and San Souci Lakes areas. It is the town’s first step toward a townwide Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP).
The plan, according to the RFP, will serve as the basis for future projects, including capital improvement work and land use applications.
The effort will include a Community Outreach Process and Plan involving the chosen consultant, the Waterfront Advisory Committee, and other partners as appropriate with at least three public workshop type meetings to be conducted during development of the LWRP. The outreach plan will identify key individuals, organizations, and entities to be involved, and a summary of each public outreach session will be made available in written form and through other appropriate means, such as notices on the Town’s website.
Those interested in submitting a RFP can attend a bidders meeting on July 10, 2012 at 2 p.m. to answer any questions and the RFP is due by August 3. The RFP states the goal is to have the LWRP effort finalized by December 2013.
