The City of Long Beach has partnered with Sustainable Long Island to work on recovery and relief efforts throughout the community; discussing and implementing methods for rebuilding and revitalization, as well as increasing resiliency to future storms. The Long Beach Listens website is an informational hub for Long Beach businesses and residents; providing a channel to stay informed and have a say with ongoing projects of the City.

In October 2012, the Long Beach Boardwalk was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy. In early 2013 a successful series of community visioning efforts held by The City of Long Beach and Sustainable Long Island insured that the initial reconstruction of the Boardwalk was consistent with the values of  Long Beach residents.  Now to help in the second phase of construction we are continuing our efforts to identify community values to help determine specific design elements related to the ways the community will use the Boardwalk.

The City of Long Beach is applying for Hazard Mitigation funding from FEMA on behalf of their residents to assist homeowners with long term solutions to mitigate against future storms....
