BERKELEY – The South Seaside Park neighborhood of the township will be the focus of a post-Sandy, long-term planning meeting for that section of Berkeley.

The meeting will take place at the Tri-Boro First Aid Squad Building in Seaside Park, from 7 to 9 p.m. January 12.

This is one of several meetings Berkeley is holding to gather public input on recovery and resiliency efforts that residents recommend, for possible inclusion into land use and other strategies.

  According to the township: “The input received at this meeting will inform the Township of Berkeley’s comprehensive post-Sandy planning efforts to mitigate, reduce or prevent impacts from natural disasters.”

It’s not a meeting of the township government, and no action will be taken that evening, but is instead a chance for the public to hear and share their ideas and comments with the officials overseeing the resiliency process.

Berkeley is one of several towns who received these resiliency grants to pay for the post-Sandy planning. Toms River and Brick have also held meetings over that last several years, with Toms River recently presenting its recommendations and findings on the Ortley Beach section.

The Tri-Boro First Aid Squad Building is located at 61 J Street.
