About Us


L & R Resources, LLC was created to meet the needs of communities, groups and individuals seeking flood hazard mitigation solutions for buildings in America located in FEMA mapped flood plains.

Coastal and riverine areas in America are facing increased dangers from a changing global climate that will feature more frequent and more intense storm events and associated flooding. Sea level rise in this century will bring new flooding challenges, never before seen, for adaptation to coastal communities and the property owners in those communities. This is the greatest challenge to American coastal communities in our history as a nation.

Flooding costs in America are rising and are predicted to continue to rise at an accelerating rate in coastal and riverine communities as the climate changes. Flooding devastates the people it touches and has a negative economic ripple effect on the communities it impacts. The Biggert Waters Act of 2012 has changed flood insurance in this country forever and it has a wide variety of impacts on property owners. L & R Resources assists property owners and communities in adapting to these changes so that they can be safer from flooding events in the future and more disaster resilient.

Flood hazard mitigation is the process we undertake to reduce the risk of future flooding. Structure elevation and or relocation are the best ways to hazard mitigate from flooding while preserving re-useable buildings. Elevation of buildings keeps the neighborhoods of communities intact. It also preserves the vital property tax revenues that communities need for streets/sewers/police/fire and school funding. Flood hazard mitigation-elevation also keeps property values stable and or increases the value of the land/buildings due to their being made safe from flood events and eligible for greatly reduced flood insurance rates into the future. The most important first step in flood hazard mitigating a property is the decision of the property owner to undertake the project.


L & R Resources, LLC has been established to service the needs of communities and property owners in the area of historic resources. Historic resources are irreplaceable. They provide communities a unique sense of place through the older architecture. L & R Resources, LLC can provide consulting services for the identification of historic resources and to assist the owners of those resources/buildings to access federal and state income tax credit financial incentive programs and property tax exemptions, where available, for historic building rehabilitation. Redevelopment of those resources and revitalization of the neighborhoods they are located in are critical for the revitalization of neighborhoods and communities.
