The Natural Areas Conservancy developed and prepared a Coastal Wetland Restoration Opportunities Inventory (ROI) on NYC parkland to advance restoration planning in parks and to facilitate the integration of wetlands and coastal restoration into citywide waterfront and resiliency planning. With spatial and summary site information on over 120 sites, and design concepts for over 30 of these sites, the ROI enables the identification and prioritization of restoration opportunities to protect and enhance the city’s coastline. Sites can be sorted and ranked based upon ecological sensitivity or condition, size, region, specific initiatives or plans, cost, and viability for community stewardship. Coastal wetland opportunities identified to date total over 275 acres, and include sites identified in other regional planning documents, as well as smaller sites not captured in other plans.
