Berkeley: Looking To 'Rebuild By Design?'

Written by HUD:

A "Rebuild By Design competition" has been launched by the Hurricane Sandy Task Force to promote resilience for the Sandy-affected region, including Berkeley Township.

The goal of the competition is to promote innovation by developing solutions that increase resilience in the region, and to implement selected proposals with both public and private funding dedicated to this effort.

The competition also represents a policy innovation by committing to set aside HUD Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery funding specifically to incentivize implementation of winning projects and proposals.  http://www.rebuildbydesign.org

The design teams have been holding meetings locally to get feedback from municipalities and residents that they would incorporate in their designs. The teams will be announcing the results of what they learned on April 3rd, and the winner will be announced in April.

I think re- building practices have been given a lot of thought. Isn't that what were talking about?

Where we rebuild should be the issue. Look the condition of the beaches the ACoE has re-nourished in Monmouth County since Sandy. The sand is gone after this winter.

Are you suggesting that all properties in a "flood zone" be relocated?
Beachlover March 30, 2014 at 09:58 AM
Some properties - yes. It needs to be a combined approach. Retreat from the most vulnerable areas and consider how to handle the other areas. Look at North Carolina's approach.
