The Town of Geddes is in the process of preparing a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) for the waterfront area along Onondaga Lake. 

The Town of Geddes Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) is a comprehensive approach to re-imagining the town’s waterfront. This process is a joint effort between the Town of Geddes, the City of Syracuse and Onondaga County to support natural resource protection, enhance waterfront access, improve multi-modal connectivity options, and provide economic revitalization opportunities. 

The preparation of a LWRP is approximately a 12 to 18 month process that will result in a planning document encompassing a community-driven vision for revitalization and specific project and policies to successfully realize key opportunities. The planning process includes the following key steps: 

  1. Developing an Inventory and Analysis of Key Existing Conditions within the Waterfront Revitalization Area (WRA) Boundary (see boundary map below)

  2. Identifying Policies and Programs to Support Waterfront Revitalization Goals

  3. Defining Local and Regional Projects to Enhance the WRA and support City and Regional Revitalization Goals
