On the main Planning Blog I posted information regarding a potential grant application to help pay to elevate homes in the flood zone. The grant will pay up to 75% of the costs. In the long run, raising a home will more than pay for itself in flood insurance savings.
Dennis Port will experience the largest number of homes being added to the flood zone. It also will experience the largest increases in flood insurance costs as many of these homes are not primary residences.
I want to encourage all our homeowners to check out this possible grant opportunity and think about joining in. I am hoping to pursue funds to elevate about 10 structures.
