Stockade Project Surveys

Property Owner Basement Survey


Please complete the Stockade Resilience Property Owner Basement Survey 2019 by November 1, 2019.

Based on expert consultation, we now know it’s possible to elevate and/or move every property. The information you provide in a brief survey about basement conditions is critical to estimate costs.  We are happy to schedule a visit to complete the survey with you. We will need direct access to the basement and to the exterior of your home to evaluate the foundation walls.


We are happy to set up a time to meet with you one on one to discuss this information, complete surveys, and look at your property.  Please contact Ian Law from PLACE Alliance at (518) 791-4817 or at


Property Owner Survey

The City and a team of consultants are evaluating current conditions in the Stockade Study Area. The preliminary target area for the analysis is bounded by Front Street, the Stockade CSX Rail Line, the Mohawk River and Cucumber Alley. 

If you own property in this area, please take the Property Owner Survey below: 


Providing information for each property you own will help the team to understand flood impacts and determine whether your property could be eligible for assistance. Your responses to the survey will also help evaluate alternatives and inform selection of the best mitigation measures to assist property owners. Your responses are confidential. Please click here if you would prefer to download and fill out a pdf version of the survey, then e-mail to:  

If you do not own property in the study area, but would like to provide input, please take the brief General Survey below:
