Sidney New York Rising Community Recovery

Sidney, New York


Following the devastating flooding of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, PLACE Alliance, in partnership with Parsons Transportation Group, River Street Planning & Development and New England Environmental, led the design component of the recovery planning effort. Detailed site selection, conceptual design, program planning, construction estimates, and advanced graphic renderings were prepared for the Town. Concept plans focused on: 1) Housing - identifying opportunities to relocate displaced residents and attract new residents. 2) Economic Development - revitalizing Main Street, increasing density, and implementing green stormwater management practices. 3) Flood Mitigation and Resiliency - an Arts and Environmental Education Center Park was proposed in an area identified for residential displacement.
