In 2005, the Alliance published the Bronx River Ecological Restoration and Management Plan and the Bronx River Greenway Plan, companion documents laying out a vision for a restored river and a continuous Bronx River Greenway in the lower Bronx River.

In 2007, Westchester County released the Bronx River Watershed Management Plan for the upper watershed.
In 2010, with input from the community, the Bronx River Alliance, NYC Parks, Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects and the New York Department of State released the Shoelace Park Master Plan, a new vision for a one-and-one-half-mile stretch of parkland along the river in the north Bronx.
And in 2011, the Alliance, the Westchester County Department of Planning, NYC Parks Natural Resources Group, and the New York Department of State came together to release a full-river management plan: the Bronx River Intermunicipal Watershed Management Plan.
Support for the Ecological Restoration and Management Plan was provided by Congressman Jose E. Serrano’s WCS-NOAA Lower Bronx River Partnership, Sarah K. de Coizart Article TENTH Perpetual Charitable Trust, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, and the New York State Department of State.
The Bronx River Greenway Plan would not have been possible without Greenway Program support from the Altman Foundation, The J.M. Kaplan Fund, Merck Family Fund, The New York Community Trust, and Sarah K. de Coizart Article TENTH Perpetual Charitable Trust.
