New Jersey Town Working to Protect Areas of Local Significance
Sea level rise has residents of Two Rivers, New Jersey, concerned, but a new tool gives them the opportunity to tell coastal managers where to focus mitigation efforts. An interactive mapping tool allows business owners, homeowners, and local officials to identify areas of interest, such as popular businesses or concert venues, so that education and mitigation efforts can follow. The maps already include places such as schools and police stations but seek to get at the areas important to residents.
