U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer, Congressman Dan Donovan and Staten Island Borough President James Oddo have announced that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to hold public community forums regarding their plans for the Staten Island Sea Wall Project.
The meetings will take place on August 19th and August 20th from 6-9pm at Staten Island University Hospital (McGinn Center).
Two and a half years ago, Superstorm Sandy devastated communities along Staten Island’s East and South Shores. The Staten Island Sea Wall project, that Schumer has long supported, is studying storm protection measures along sections of the coastline from Fort Wadsworth to Tottenville, including a proposed seawall.
Phase 1 of the project covers Ft. Wadsworth to Oakwood, while Phase 2 is Great Kills to Tottenville.
