Waterfront Revitalization

Updated 9/9/20:  Germantown has received a grant from the state to begin working on developing a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP). An LWRP committee has been formed.

The Waterfront Advisory Committee has been focused on the Amtrak Fences and Gates proposal which, in part due to their work, was formally withdrawn for revisions last year. A website, gatesgate.org, was created around this issue. The site will continue to be updated as needed.

The Parks Commission, the Waterfront Advisory Committee and the History Department are collaborating on an informational kiosk planned for Cheviot Park this fall.
