Long Branch Proposes New Flood Plan in Wake of Sandy



Residents of Long Branch may have to raise their homes to 2 feet above the new advisory base flood elevations issued by FEMA.

The proposed amendment was introduced Tuesday that would require the elevation if home owners had repair costs to their home that was more than 50 percent in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Mayor Adam Schneider told the Asbury Park Press, “Our goal is to encourage people — if the finances and ability to do it is there — to raise their houses so there is significantly less damage.”

During the cleanup of Sandy Long Branch had 15,000 tons of debris removed from it’s streets and beachfront.
