2016 Walk The Walkway (WTW) schedule is set.  Click on Events for more info.

Since May 2011, the DEP has been litigating the violations incurred on the property of the Le Jardin restaurant in Edgewater.  The current action is against IMO Lookout Associates, 1275 River Road Associates and Fred Daibes, the owners of the property. This action addresses illegal filling in of the Hudson River and various unapproved illegal construction events on the property since 2001.  The DEP has proposed to settle this suit and the proposed settlement agreement can be found here.  Construction of the Walkway on the Le Jardin property is critical​ and the continuing delays due to the legal issues have prevented the public its rightful access to the waterfront.  It  is a crucial “gap” in the Walkway in Edgewater and, when completed, will allow previously constructed segments of the Walkway to be  accessible and to be one step closer to the full length of 18.5 miles from Bayonne to the GW Bridge as was originally intended​ by its designers and the NJ State legislation.

The Conservancy does not endorse this Settlement and has provided comments on the proposed settlement to the DEP.  Our comments can be found here and in Our Opinion page.  Our comments primarily address the need for more timely construction of the Walkway and assurances that the Walkway will, in fact, be built and completed  promptly after a Settlement is reached.

Our 3/30/16 comments on the Settlement Agreement.
