Webinar Summary:

The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) has worked diligently to implement the Master Plan of the Central Delaware, since its adoption in 2011. While the Master Plan made recommendations for development typologies and public access across the waterfront, it did not make a detailed examination of the types of development specifically appropriate on finger piers. The Master Plan broadly identified sustainability as a key goal but was unable to get into detail about resiliency best practices and the role these finger piers can play regarding rising sea levels and increasingly frequent and strong precipitation events and storms. 

The DRWC asked Advisory Services to provide recommendations and best practices for the development of the finger piers and incentivizing resilient development. This presentation reflects the panel's final recommendations as presented to the DRWC.
