The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and officials in the Two Rivers region of northeastern Monmouth County will host an open house about the ‘Two Rivers, One Future’ regional resilience plan on Wednesday, July 10.

The open house for this coastal protection campaign is a part of the New Jersey Fostering Regional Adaptation through Municipal Economic Scenarios project, also known as NJ FRAMES.

“This effort is an important component of the state’s overall strategy for making the coast more resilient to the impacts of sea-level rise and climate change,” said DEP Chief Resilience Officer  and Assistant Commissioner, David Rosenblatt.

“An important goal of the Two Rivers effort, as in other parts of the state, is making sure residents are fully engaged in planning for the future of their communities.”

The goal of the ‘Two Rivers, One Future’ campaign is to help communities in the Two Rivers region prepare for and respond to coastal hazards and the risk of flooding by integrating science on sea-level rise and coastal storm risk into local and regional resiliency plans.

The event will take place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the gallery of the Middletown Arts Center,  36 Church Street, Middletown.

During the open house, residents and stakeholders of the 15 municipalities in the Two Rivers region will be updated on the regional resilience planning process and be given a chance to provide feedback on adaption options for their region.
