The second workshop of the “Your LIC” public engagement process will focus on resiliency and public open space along the Long Island City waterfront.

The workshop is scheduled for Monday, December 16, at 6 p.m. at Hunters Point Middle School. Like the first workshop, it will be facilitated by Dr. Gail Mellow, former president of LaGuardia Community College, and Bishop Mitchell Taylor, co-founder of Urban Upbound.

Architecture and design experts from SHoP Architects, SCAPE Landscape Architecture and Sherwood Design Engineers will deliver presentation on “long-term urban resiliency and equitable park access.”

Your LIC, which is led by three developers looking to shape the future of the 28-acre site on the western Queens waterfront, kicked off in November with a workshop on economic empowerment and career development.

The third workshop will focus on community resources, such as schools, recreation and culture. The fourth and last one will delve into comprehensive neighborhood planning, with an emphasis on infrastructure, housing and mobility.

Last week, Your LIC also announced that the family-owned plastics manufacturer Plaxall has joined TF Cornerstone, Simon Baron Development and L&L MAG for public engagement process.

The longtime Long Island City-based company owns a large swath of the waterfront, including the Anable Basin.

“We have been paying close attention to the Your LIC process and want to support this community engagement and participation,” Plaxall managing director Paula Kirby said in a statement.

“Having been a part of Long Island City for 70 years, we are dedicated to the future of the waterfront,” she added, “and look forward to working with our neighbors to create a plan that works for the entire community.”
