There will have to be a real conversation regarding any "timetable" for this project in light of the ongoing restoration efforts of those homes damaged by the October 29th storm surge.
Presently the majority of West 12th Road residents are displaced (only six homes occupied on West 12th Road) with construction ongoing at some. The remaining are dealing with FEMA and/or their respective insurance companies in an effort to finally obtain funds for the required restoration.
Although construction of the end of street bulkheads could possibly be undertaken this spring/summer, the amount of work left to be done to make resident homes habitable again would preclude the street raising from starting until all these repairs are completed.
We will start to canvass all W12th Road home owners in an effort to ascertain a realistic projection of home repair completion and will pass that on to Commissioner McCarthy when we obtain it.
