Burlington FEMA Site Closed

Posted: Updated:

Two of the three groups sites established by FEMA to provide housing to flood victims in 2011 have now closed.

The site at 42nd Street Northeast closed earlier this year.

And today, the site at Burlington was officially shut down.

The final FEMA temporary housing unit was hauled away this afternoon.

Brian Hvinden, spokesperson for FEMA, says the Burlington site originally had 50 trailers, a number that began to shrink in January.

Now, the Virgil Workman Site at 55th Street Southeast is the only remaining group site for FEMA trailers.

(Brian Hvinden, FEMA Spokesperson) "This is just another step in the recovery process for the valley. I think for the folks in Burlington it is one less visible reminder of the flood. And now we'll be able to turn this property back over and hopefully it'll be something that they can develop and use in the future."

At the peak, about 21-hundred families were living in temporary housing units provided by FEMA.
