The purpose of the meeting is to introduce the Plan to the public and to

actions to implement goals of the plan in their community. Public review and
assistance is being sought to tailor the plan to meet local needs and
opportunities, and to aid in its revision and further development.

to be conducted during each session.
The Army Corps and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey released the
draft Comprehensive Restoration Plan in 2009 that was developed in
partnership with the New York/New Jersey Harbor Estuary Program (HEP). The
HEP is a consortium of federal, state, municipal, non-governmental
organizations and other regional stakeholders focused on improving the
quality of the harbor estuary.
This Plan was prepared in collaboration with the region’s state and federal
agencies and non-governmental organizations as a part of the Hudson-Raritan
Estuary Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study. The Plan was adopted by HEP
Partners as a forward path for future restoration and is the HEP-endorsed
habitat restoration plan for the New York/New Jersey Harbor.
