At the April 11th Village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustees meeting, Mayor Norman Rosenblum updated the community about the Army Corps of Engineers Flood Mitigation Plan. As previously reported, the $70 million dollar project, which began in 2009, wants to help prevent flooding around the areas that are close to the Mamaroneck and Sheldrake Rivers. In order for the project to be in effect, it needs to be consistent with the Local Waterfront Rehabilitation Program or LWRP. The document consists of 44 policies, which aim to promote a balance between economic development and preservation of the Village of Mamaroneck coastal resources. After the Harbor Coastal Zone Management Commission suggested that the Army Corps Project is inconsistent with many policies of the LWRP. In a March 28th public forum regarding the issue, residents spoke for over 3 hours about their support and concerns toward the project. The Harbor Coastal Zone Management Commission of HCZMC is not the only one that has a consistency vote on the Army Corps Plan. The Department of State, or DOS, and the Village of Mamaroneck must also vote. Mayor Rosenblum stated that the Department of State did not find the flooding plan inconsistent with the LWRP, and requested more information in order to make a decision. After additional information is provided to the Department of State, the Army Corps of Engineers will need to submit a formal consistency determination. As of yet, the requested additional information has not been sent. Following the comments from residents, the Board unanimously passed a resolution to write a letter of support to the Department of State. The letter requests the DOS to inform the Village and the HCZM Commission of their decision.
