Hurricane Sandy
Building Code and Zoning Reform Suggestions
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Citizens Housing & Planning Council (CHPC) has been focused on three main objectives in our support of this massive rehabilitation and rebuild effort:
Non-Profit Leadership - We chair a task force for the Department of Housing Preservation & Development that is coordinating with and supporting the needs of non-profit organizations working in the affected neighborhoods.
How Environment and Home Meet for the 21st Century: Life After Sandy We are working in partnership with a CHPC William R. Ginsberg Practitioner Fellow who is establishing a new non-profit organization charged with addressing the needs of residents living in Zones A and V. This organization is working with specific neighborhoods across the city that require detailed assessment and support. It is focused on: exploring all options for communities; working through the complex decision-making processes with residents; and recommending policies and processes to decision-makers based on the experiences of these residents.
Regulatory Reform - Citizens Housing & Planning Council assembled a number of targeted sub-committees made up of our board members and other industry experts in specific areas of housing policy, development, design, and management. They are tasked to develop concrete recommendations for regulatory change that are critical to speed up and streamline repair and rebuild efforts and to improve new and existing buildings to mitigate future flood damage.
This is a summary of items that we have already discussed directly with all relevant public agencies. We continue to develop these recommendations through further discussion and research:
