Community Meeting - October 23, 2018

City of Schenectady staff and project team members conducted a community meeting on October 23, 2018 to introduce the Stockade Flood Mitigation Project, gather initial feedback, and answer questions. We look forward to continuing working with the neighborhood as community input is a vital component of this major project.


Conducting a comprehensive community engagement process and evaluating all identified potential mitigation alternatives will allow us to implement the best practicable solution for the Stockade Historic District.
