SEA BRIGHT, N.J. (AP) - Construction of bulkheads to protect against storm surges, and the building of a parking deck and a year-round beach pavilion, are among ideas being floated in one Jersey shore town hit hard by Superstorm Sandy.

A committee of Sea Bright residents has spent months pondering the long-term future of the barrier island community.

Sea Bright is a narrow town nestled between the ocean and the Shrewsbury River, and has been plagued by flooding from even minor storms for decades.

Recommendations unveiled this week are aimed at making the town better able to withstand future storms.

Borough residents are being asked to vote on which projects they think should be done first.

A final plan will be presented to the public Nov. 6.
