[ARCHIVED] Tell us: are you interested in lifting up your house to prevent flood damage?

We lifted up homes on Babbitt Court in 2004. Read info from FEMA

In 2004 Greenburgh obtained a grant from FEMA to lift up some residents homes on Babbitt Court. As a result -residents who live on Babbitt Court don't have to worry much about storms, hurricanes and significant flood damage. Before FEMA lifted up the homes  residents used row boats to get to their homes after some storms. Babbitt Court is located off Saw Mill RIver Road on the border of Elmsford.

After the recent storm many residents around the town experienced significant property damage--lost cars, furniture, boilers, heaters, air conditioners, basements.  I'd like to be of help to residents who don't want to experience similar problems the next time there is a major storm and flooding.

QUESTION: If the town applies for a grant to lift up homes around the town would you be interested in having your house participate in the program? We will share info with our consultant and public works team.  If yes, please provide us with your name, address, phone, e mail address and a short summary of the damage you experienced.
