The meeting, which is open to the public, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the St. Jude Community Center, 400 North Rampart St.Remember, if the only people showing up at these events are the pro-Disney faction, the city assumes that's where the consensus view lies.
Landrieu's security plan is a sweeping, multifaceted proposal to improve safety in the French Quarter and across the city in the wake of several violent shootings. But questions remain over just how the estimated price tag will cover the changes in a city with little wriggle room in its annual budget.
Also this series of NORA community engagement events is ongoing.
The New Orleans Redevelopment Authority is holding community engagement meetings throughout March to update residents on its investments throughout the city and discuss future opportunities for properties and housing in each area.
The goal is to keep residents and businesses informed on the progress of economic development of properties in each council district.
NORA Executive Director Brenda Breaux and members of the senior management team will present the organization’s sales history, disposition methods, current property inventory, updates on non-compliant Road Home properties and opportunities for housing development, commercial revitalization and land stewardship.
Remember, if the only people showing up at these events are the pro-Airbnb real estate speculators, the city assumes that's where the consensus view lies. The first of these meetings happened last Thursday, by the way. I haven't seen any reporting on it so it looks like the only way to know what's happening there is to go yourself.
Update: Forgot to mention. NORA is meeting with the public "future opportunities for properties and housing" at the same time that the city's STR licensing system goes live. So it's pretty clear who these meetings are probably for.
