A Fair Share for Our National Park – What can be done to save Gateway?

12. Show us the Money
New advocacy and funding mechanisms to bring our share of funds to the harbor.
What Funding Mechanisms are needed and what advocacy must we do to bring more federal funding to New York and New Jersey for the harbor?

13. Edge Design for the Rising Tide and Aquatic Life
Regulation, design, & barriers to innovation-making visionary waterfront designs real.
From new housing developments to great and new parks, much of our waterfront use and contour is being defined for the indefinite future. How do we maintain design and permitting flexibility for a world class waterfront? How do we make innovative ecological design and restoration, from small bulkhead redesigns to the Rising Currents exhibition at Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), real in New York and New Jersey? What are the regulatory, social, and planning barriers and how can they be addressed?
