It’s been two years since Hurricane Ida devastated parts of the City of Lambertville. Since then, the riverside city has remained proactive on ways to tackle flooding concerns.
Lambertville will host a post-Hurricane Ida community session on Tuesday, October 17 at 7 p.m. at the Phillip L. Pittore Justice Center on South Union Street.
The community session will give Lambertville residents a chance to voice their ideas and concerns to the city’s council.
It will also give Lambertville officials a chance to share what they’ve accomplished with residents when it comes to sustainability and climate change.
To name a few of their recent moves, the city has created a plan to install two electric vehicle charging stations on North Union Street with a grant; listened to a stormwater utility presentation from New Jersey Future on whether a stormwater utility was right for them; and approved a stormwater management ordinance, per previous reporting by the New Hope Free Press.
Lambertville also received a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to revamp Holcombe Park. This move improves the park’s ability to capture stormwater while turning it into a natural wonder filled with beautiful plants right here in Lambertville.
Another flood management initiative the city is conducting is paying Princeton Hydro to conduct a stormwater utility feasibility study, which won’t exceed $63,400.
