6 thoughts on “Two years, and 328 out of 40,500 New Jersey Sandy homes repaired?!?

    I was able to get some clarification from the reporter who wrote the story on a thread on Facebook about this statistic. Really does sound like this is the accurate number – i.e., that nearly 0% of the homes damaged in New Jersey by Sandy have gotten to a successful disaster recovery.

    That’s awful.

      how are you defining “complete” – there are homes in Highlands that are put back together, lifted, moved back into, inspections complete and c/o’s issued. Do you mean through RREM?

      328 does sound low. That’s why I wondered if it meant repaired, lifted and moved back in. In Highlands we had 1200 out of 1700 damaged, and I would say 300+ here have moved back. Not all of those have lifted yet. Some that moved back are in lifting flux, meaning they fixed, moved back and will have to move back out again to lift. But the overall # of finished houses I’m guessing is still not stellar. What are you seeing by you?

      Thanks for the clarification Jean. Do you know of those considered complete if they used their own contractor vs. Pathway C where the state handled everything? I’ve heard that Pathway C seems to take a lot longer, but haven’t seen any hard numbers to back that up.
