SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. – Climate change and rising sea levels are affecting communities up and down the Hudson River. One group hopes to get officials thinking about how those issues will affect waterfront development.

Historic Hudson River Towns and Sleepy Hollow are sponsoring a half-day program called “Planning Your Sustainable Waterfront” on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the James Galgano Senior Center on Elm Street in Sleepy Hollow.

The event is “designed to engage participants in thinking about how to plan sustainable waterfront development, while addressing environmental needs and issues.” A broad range of topics will be discussed, including new base-flood elevation maps released by FEMA.

Speakers at the event include John Nolon from the Pace University Law School and Land Use Center, Sacha Spector from Scenic Hudson, Betsy Blair from the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Andy Peck from the Nature Conservancy, and FEMA representatives.

Tickets are $20 for representatives of Historic Hudson River Towns communities and $30 for non-member communities. To register, call Historic Hudson River Towns at 914-232-6583.
