Wednesday, June 23, 2021. 6:00 PM. Webinar: Resilient Northeastern NJ - Virtual Community Meeting #1. Sponsored by New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Full details, registration and webinar link here.
The Resilient Northeastern NJ project aims to develop flood risk and resilience solutions for the Northeastern New Jersey region, which includes Jersey City, Newark, Hoboken, and Bayonne. The project is funded and spearheaded by NJDEP, and is led by the municipalities, Hudson County, as well as two community-based organizations (HOPES CAP and Ironbound Community Corporation).
Join us at our first community meeting about the project. During the meeting, we hope you will:
- Share your experiences with flooding and thoughts about community visions and priorities
- Identify places in your community where it is important to reduce risk of flooding
- Identify factors to use when weighing flood risk reduction solutions against one another
- Consider the opportunities and constraints of potential strategies to address flooding
We will begin the meeting with a short introduction about the project, but the majority of the meeting will be dedicated to group activities in breakout sessions.
Please select the breakout session you would like to join when you submit your order form. If you have already shared your thoughts on community vision and flood experiences, we encourage you to join the “Deep Dive” session into flood risk and tools. Everyone will have the opportunity to talk about flood risk and tools, but the “Deep Dive” session will spend more time on these topics.
