Public Hearing on Proposed $75 Million Concrete Seawall Around Lawrence High School

March 14 @ 7:00 pm

The Village of Cedarhurst, under the leadership of Mayor Benjamin Weinstock and the Board of Trustees, invites the community to a pivotal public hearing addressing the proposed $75 Million concrete seawall surrounding Lawrence High School. This essential event offers residents an unprecedented opportunity to voice opinions, concerns, and suggestions on this significant development impacting our community.

Despite declined requests to FEMA, the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, and the Lawrence School Board for a public hearing, the Village of Cedarhurst takes a proactive stance by hosting this crucial event. Scheduled for Thursday, March 14, 2024, at 7:00 PM in Village Hall, the hearing aims to provide an inclusive platform for community members to express their perspectives.

FEMA has committed to attending, emphasizing the importance of your input. Invitations have been extended to the School Board and Homeland Security, underlining the Village’s commitment to fostering an open dialogue that reflects the concerns of residents and
 neighboring communities.

All are welcome to come and speak, and in addition, to submit written comments at the hearing and/or online to FEMA at FEMAR2Comment@FEMA.dhs.gov.  Kindly send a copy of your comments to Mayor@Cedarhurst.gov.  

Comments are most impactful if they are substantive.  They should include, for example, pictures or other evidence of flood conditions, damage reports for flood insurance claims, or other concrete empirical information you want FEMA to consider.  General statements that you oppose or support the project are not meaningful.  For more information visit our website at www.cedarhurst.gov.

Let this be a collective effort to shape the future of our community. Join us on March 14th to ensure your voice is heard.
