Rebuilding a Resilient Shore

December 7, 2012
8:00 amto1:00 pm

The devastation from Hurricane Sandy created a wake-up call on the need to rebuild the Jersey shore in a way that respects nature and protects people, properties and public investments.  Come hear expert speakers address key topics, and share your opinion on how we can restore a thriving, healthy and resilient coastal region.  Sessions will include:

  • The “new normal:” our vulnerability to future storms
  • Lessons from other states with strong coastal management programs
  • Actions to ensure resiliency, including changes to statutes, regulations and plans

More details will be available the week of Nov. 26.

The event is free, but registration is required.
