The City of Rensselaer Open Space Plan (OSP) has been completed and adopted by both the Common Council and Planning Commission on April 17th, 2024.    The Plan was funded through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Hudson River Estuary Program (HREP). The OSP comes as a follow up to the City of Rensselaer 2021 Natural Resource Inventory.

The purpose of the Open Space Plan is to educate and engage residents on the current and future state of Rensselaer's natural spaces and public parks to identify local priorities that will help enhance community resilience and climate preparedness in the City.
