    Rebuild by Design, a federal design competition that seeks to address structural and environmental vulnerabilities that Superstorm Sandy exposed and develop fundable solutions to better protect residents from future climate events, will host public workshops in Toms River and Keansburg Thursday. 

    The Jersey Shore “Sasaki” team, one of ten teams selected by President Obama’s Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force, will present its resiliency design ideas and seek input from the public on opportunities to strengthen the ideas, according to a release from the organization.

    “The basis of their design opportunity comes from the goal to make the beach more resilience by focusing on rethinking the three iconic elements of the shore: the pier, the boardwalk, and the marina,” the release notes.
