Hazlet Mobile Parks Have Some Room For Temporary FEMA Housing

Hazlet Mayor David Tinker has notified Congressman Pallone's office of the availability of pads in mobile parks in town.

Hazlet Township has notified officials that there are vacant pads available in Holmdel mobile parks that can accomodate the FEMA manufactured mobile homes for families forced out of their homes due to Hurricane Sandy damage.

As of last week, there was room for about 33 of the mostly three-bedroom units at Bayshore Mobile; Locust Grove and Sam's, all on Route 36; and Brookside Mobile on Route 35. 

Hazlet Mayor David Tinker says the township is reaching out "out of compassion" for its neighbors who have been devastated at the Bayshore, so that they can be near their homes during the rebuilding process. He has contacted Congressman Frank Pallone's with an available inventory list, so that the Congressman can work out details with the park owners and FEMA. 

FEMA is looking to place the trailers in appropriate places. "By law, they cannot be placed in high-risk flood zones," said FEMA Public Information Officer Chris McKniff.

"These units will provide long-term, temporary housing where families can live for up to 18 months," said McKniff.

Storms and other disasters can really displaced a lot of families due to housing damages. I'm glad that the government is taking so much effort to alleviate the hardship of these people. Happy new year to all! ArchInterimHousing.com
