A federal task force created by President Obama following Hurricane Sandy is expected to unveil its recommendations today for how to rebuild critical infrastructure damaged by the storm consistent with the need to prepare for future storms. Mayor Michael Bloomberg is joining Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan at a news conference to unveil the recommendations this morning. During his weekly radio address yesterday, Bloomberg spoke about how the city is working to make the waterfront "stronger and more resilient" — from sand replenishment in the Rockaways to the creation of an institute to study urban ecosystems in an era of climate change.
