- Waterfront Action Agenda
MWA Task Forces meet up to three times per year to discuss and deliberate waterfront policy. MWA's task forces are credited with the development of the Waterfront Action Agenda, the first comprehensive waterfront plan for the region. The Waterfront Action Agenda served as a catalyst for the development of the New York City Comprehensive Waterfront Plan.
For more information about MWA's Task Forces or to join a task force, please contact Cortney Worrall at email@example.com.
