  • I posted the following comment on FEMA’s website:

    I would like to suggest an alternative to demolition for 3319-21 Iberville Street, New Orleans LA 70119.

    The specific alternative I would like to suggest is: renovation. As a source of funding for renovation, I’d like to suggest the Historic Building Recovery Grant Program. I believe this house would be eligible.

    More info at

    Also, the owner should feel free to contact the Mid-City Neighborhood Organization if he or she needs help figuring out alternatives to demolition. Their website is at http://mcno.org/

    This house is part of the distinctive housing stock of a national historic district. Please don’t tear it down.

    Of course, I make this comment without full awareness of any structural problems the house may have. I merely observed from the street (I live two blocks away) that it looks to be in pretty good shape.

  • Why does this post say “4603 Banks Street”? Also, it should be noted that this property has been removed from FEMA’s demolition list for reasons unknown.

    I can find out why this was bounced off the list. Give me til mid-week. Jesus Murphy, don’t know where the week went. I will look into this because I want to know every aspect of this process. The people at FEMA are really trying to help us iron out the kinks in all this. Monday we have a special meeting at City Council with all parties involved in demolition. It will be on Geek TV.

    4603 Banks ? Probably a small error we do have another Mid City property in our database there.

  • Bart..You have eagle eyes. That was because I cut and copied the basic information.

    Thanks, I will fix it.
