NAHB Calls on Stakeholders to Band Together during Rebuilding of Texas Gulf Coast

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Granger MacDonald, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder and developer from Kerrville, Texas, issued the following statement on the need for collaboration among key stakeholders as communities look to rebuild.

“In light of the White House announcement that 100,000 homes were damaged by Hurricane Harvey, I am calling on all stakeholders to work together during the long and arduous process of rebuilding the homes and communities devastated by the storm.

“The flooding caused by the hurricane has left behind unprecedented damage. Rebuilding will be a costly and complex process demanding hard work, sacrifice and creative solutions. This is the time for the business community, government and individuals to work cooperatively toward the shared goal of restoring the communities along the Gulf Coast.

“This is a complicated, multifaceted challenge. It will touch on finance; insurance; building technology; local, state and federal laws and regulations; communication and numerous other sectors and processes.

“The National Association of Home Builders stands with the people of Houston and all of the Gulf Coast during this difficult time. We pledge to be active in the efforts to rebuild the region’s homes and communities and to help make them better than ever.”
