NJ FRAMES Open House

TRENTON – On Thursday, February 23, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the lobby of the Two River Theater in Red Bank, the Department of Environmental Protection will host an event for the public to offer input about flooding concerns in the Two Rivers region and learn what steps are being taken to improve flooding resiliency in the area.

The open house will feature booths where the public can learn about flood resiliency efforts, sea- level rise, ecology basics and more.

The open house is part of the DEP’s New Jersey Fostering Regional Adaptation through Municipal Economic Scenarios (NJ FRAMES) project, which aims to help officials in the region understand the impacts of flood resiliency decisions in the communities surrounding the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) a year ago awarded New Jersey a $900,000 Regional Coastal Resilience Grant to help the 15 municipalities in northeastern Monmouth County develop a regional plan to address the potential impacts of storm surge and other coastal hazards.

The Two River Theater is at 21 Bridge Avenue in Red Bank.
