Within days, contractors showed up to help rebuild homes on the northside. Insurance companies wanted to keep repair costs on the homes low. Lipke-Pier says Rebuild it Right recommended what was appropriate for the homes and helped many homeowners advocate for themselves.
“Quality was taken out so quality should be put back in,” says
Rebuild it Right will be part of Minneapolis’ 100 green homes initiative. The city has pledged to build energy efficient and affrodable homes for people living on the Northside.
Says Lipke-Pier, “I want people to move to the Northside because of the houses. This is a great community.”
