In an effort to assist survivors of Hurricane Michael to repair or rebuild damaged homes, the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners approved Resolution 2018-22 which was extended through December 31, 2020 by Resolution 2020-10 as titled:
A RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF JACKSON COUNTY, FLORIDA; ADOPTING TEMPORARY HOUSING ASSISTANCE FOR RESIDENTS DURING AND FOR THE RECOVERY OF THE DISASTER FROM HURRICANE MICHAEL THAT OCCURRED ON OCTOBER 10, 2018.
The resolutions approved the temporary use of Recreational Vehicles or FEMA mobile dwelling units to be allowed on premises of homeowners while repairing or reconstructing their residences through December 31, 2020. All County development orders and permits were to be obtained by property owners.
County Ordinance 74-97 (c) states: Recreational Vehicles (as defined in F.S. § 320.01(1)(b)) will be allowed only in approved recreational sites/parks. This ordinance was and remains in effect for those that were not approved for disaster recovery through development orders or permits by the Community Development Department.
The County remains committed in assisting survivors of Hurricane Michael. If you should need additional time to repair or rebuild your home, please contact the Community Development Department at 850-482-9637. Verification of residency prior to Hurricane Michael, initial damage, and a housing plan are required to allow extensions beyond the December 31, 2020 deadline.
