In Stage III of Rebuild by Design, the Sasaki team has begun outreach to communities and partners along the Jersey Shore. This has included site visits, interviews, informal conversations and a stakeholder webinar held on Thursday, December 12, 2013. Given the regional aspect of our Jersey Shore study area, the webinar was a way to bring together regional organizations, local non-profits and grassroots groups, and community leaders and administrators from the local and county scales. The webinar program began with a presentation by the Sasaki team about the three design ideas for the Jersey Shore and the team’s preliminary understandings of key issues in Union Beach/ Keansburg, Asbury Park, and the Toms River district. Following the presentation, attendees from local communities and organizations asked questions about the projects or offered additional ideas and comments about community concerns and existing projects that should be coordinated with. The team looks forward to ongoing conversations with the attendees as the projects develop.
