I met with Victor Carosi today to discuss potential mitigation projects and properties to consider for mitigation grant funding. Letters of Intent to NYSOEM for municipal project grants are due at the end of the month, and I will continue to work with Victor on those. We are currently looking at a solution to address flooding at the community center.
He also identified several private properties that we need to focus on for potential grant funding for acquisition or elevations, including:
· Babbitt Court – Cerone, acquisition
· 123 Florence – good elevation candidate
· Old Kensico Road – acquisition
· 16 Hunter Lane, Elmsford - acquisition
I believe our intent was to do some general public outreach, particulary to floodprone residents and business, to explain the mitigation grant programs and canvass for interest. Could you contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss how best to accomplish this outreach? Thank you.
