Pecks Beach Village Residents Return to Homes
Residents of the homes had been displaced by Superstorm Sandy.
Mayor Jay Gillian is pleased to announce that many of the residents of Pecks Beach Village are returning to their homes following the destructive effects of Superstorm Sandy. The City, in cooperation with the Housing Authority and community support, worked diligently to repair the homes of the families and senior citizens displaced by the storm.
“I cannot tell you how proud I am of our community,” said Mayor Gillian. “The cooperation displayed between the builders, the Housing Authority and the city team members and the hard work put in by everyone involved, makes me proud to be mayor of this great city. I also thank the Pecks Beach Village residents for their patience; I cannot imagine how hard it must have been to be displaced for so long, and out of their homes for the holidays. “
Residents began to return to the newly rehabilitated units beginning Feb. 1. The remaining residents will continue to return home each week as the final units are completed.
Second Ward Councilman Antwan McClellan said, “Having the residents of Pecks Beach Village return to their homes is a great relief to them after a challenging few months. I was glad to be part of a collaborative team effort helping the residents get their lives back to some sort of normalcy."
