Over a dozen homes in the Village of Greene will be moving up, literally.

$1.3 million is being allocated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to allow 13 residential properties that were damaged in the 2011 flooding from Tropical Storm Lee to be elevated to prevent future storm damage.

The homes are to be raised about two feet to bring them above the flood plain.

FEMA still needs to send contracts to the homeowners for them to fill out and send back in order to receive the promised funding.

Village officials are praising the allocation saying the funds will help keep residents in the community and preserve several historic homes.
