Cornell University’s Community and Regional Development Institute (CaRDI) North Troy Focus Group
May 15, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm EDT
We are a research group based out of Cornell University’s Community and Regional Development Institute (CaRDI). Working in partnership with the Hudson River Estuary Program and the NYS Water Research Institute, we are exploring increased flood risk and responses in New York State. The current focus of our project is on the city of Troy. We are seeking to learn how past flooding has impacted residents and how flood risk impacts people in their day-to-day lives. We are currently recruiting people to participate in focus groups on life in Troy and how it relates to the river and waterfront. The first focus group will meet in North Troy on Tuesday, May 15 at 6pm. The second focus group will be in South Troy on Wednesday, May 16 at 4pm. Each group will last for approximately 2 hours. Drinks and snacks will be provided as well as a $25 gift card to thank participants for their time.
