Hurricane Sandy Update - 7/2013
Almost nine months after Hurricane Sandy hit our shores and the tri-state area we are still in recovery and rebuilding. For every building, street and house that has been repaired there are many, many more that have still not. AIA-NJ and our architect members have been involved on many fronts of the rebuilding efforts, both on the local and state levels.
The Camp Osborn SDAT (Sustainable Design Assessment Team) was held on April 27th & 28th, 2013, in Brick, NJ. AIA-NJ members, architects, engineers, planners and landscape architects worked together to create a design program to help rebuild the Route 35 community of Camp Osborn.
A public presentation to town officials and residents of the results of this event was held on May 18th in Brick Township. The information presented can be found below:
How Can You Help
- AIA-NJ is looking for ideas from YOU -
During the month of January, 2013, an AIA-NJ task force was formed to explore options to best help New Jersey post Hurricane Sandy. At the beginning of the year, the American Institute of Architects made a contribution of $37,500 to AIA-NJ to help with Sandy Recovery efforts. The task force was established to develop programs to distribute the funds. The task force has developed multiple programs however there is still more to be done and they are still working to help NJ rebuild. Any ideas or suggestions on how AIA-NJ can help to bring our local communities closer to pre-Sandy times please contact us.
Got an idea go to the original article and post a comment, or forward them via email to AIA-NJ President Jack Purvis at firstname.lastname@example.org subject line: Sandy Relief Program .
