Rebuilding Red Hook with Jim Garrison
Rebuilding session for Red Hook homeowners and business owners with architect Jim Garrison
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8TH
351 VAN BRUNT
At 6:30 Thursday night, architect Jim Garrison will be on site to share rebuilding resources with local home and business owners. He will help explain some of the more arcane FEMA guidelines, and advise regarding updated mechanical systems that are less expensive and less flood-prone.
This will be an essential info session for people who are looking into grants and loans to get their buildings back running again.
Topics will include:
- Flood-proofing and upgrading your mechanical systems
- Grants, loans, and tax incentives for rebuilding
- Demystifying the FEMA guidelines
- Proposals for updated building codes for flood-prone areas
This will be an informative session, but it will also be an opportunity to share your views on the best practices for moving ahead as a community. Let’s use this disaster as a chance to speak to the city about Red Hook’s future.
