Businss Recovery After Superstorm Sandy

The American Planning Association New York Metro Chapter presented a report, Getting Back to Business: Addressing the Needs of Rockaway Businesses Affected by Superstorm Sandy, to the Rockaway Development and Revitalization Corporation (RDRC), culminating a seven-month effort to address business recovery and resilience on the Rockaway peninsula after Superstorm Sandy.

Despite best efforts, approximately half of the Rockaway’s 1,100 businesses are still closed. To address this, the chapter brought together dozens of planning experts to volunteer their services to develop medium and long-term strategies for RDRC, the peninsula’s largest community development corporation.
