ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Stilt Built Homes in Florida Keys Survive Storm   [open pdf - 1MB]

"A recreational vehicle (RV) park that was redeveloped into a modular-home condominium community with stilt-built homes has demonstrated the benefits of mitigation. During its decades-long existence, the character of the 22-acre oceanfront RV park in Key Largo, Florida, has gradually changed. The land is in a special flood hazard area. Residents had been constructing additions to RVs and permanent structures that did not comply with the county's zoning and flood restrictions."
