The Governors Island Alliance is proud to announce the release of Governors
Island: Guidelines for Parks and Public Spaces, an illustrated set of
guidelines for the 172 acre Island.  They can be found at
www.governorsislandalliance.org. The guidelines propose specific design
objectives and standards to ensure that the more than 80 acres of public
spaces to be created on the Island match the special character of the Island
and are truly public in nature.  These public spaces will include at least 40
acres of new public parks, a 22 acre National Monument, a waterfront
esplanade, and the existing historic landscapes.
Highlighted within the guidelines are three illustrated alternative visions
for the Islandbs future and four layouts of public space considered
bunsuitableb by the Alliance members. Members of the public may vote on
their favorite of the three illustrated versions of the Islandbs public
parks and spaces by visiting the website, to help guide the Alliancebs
advocacy efforts. The Alliance is working with the National Park Service and
the Governors Island Preservation and Education Corporation to see these
guidelines adopted in the public plans now being developed for the Island.
Thank you for your continued support of the Governors Island Alliance and our
shared vision of distinctive public spaces for the Island.
Robert Pirani
Executive Director
Governors Island Alliance
