Squandered Heritage Vintage

Flip..no flop..no flip..no..

Today the Mayor spoke at the City Council Recovery Meeting. Lot’s of kisses, lot’s of backslaps and lot’s of confusion. The Mayor was firm in his resolve to continue to enforce the Executive Order. And Dr. Blakley spoke about how important it was to maintain our Historic housing stock and all the while upstairs they were inputting demolition permits on the properties listed below.

One of these properties is around the corner from me, we fought to prevent it from being demolished. We also asked that there be a code enforcement judgement rendered against the property owner. A property owner who has 4 properties with a 2 block radius that he has bled dry and now just ignores them. So much for Code Enforcement, so much for Good Neighbor Programs so much for “listening”.

Of additional interest 2 permits to the RSD?

  • Are the two properties 2513 3rd and 3422 Desaix (listed “Recovery School District”) caretaker cottages? And why IS the RSD pulling demilition permits while the School Facilities Master Plan is still under consideration? Not that there had been proper notification for the extension of the public comment period or publicity related to the public meeting.
    The meeting, re- scheduled due to Gustav, will be held Thursday, September 18, 2008, 5:30 p.m. at McDonogh #35 Auditorium, 1331 Kerlerec Street.
    Public comment period has been extended to October 1, the date of the second and final public meeting.

    I can save the city the cost of a demolition. They can just give me one of those houses. It’s unforgivable that they are tearing them down willy-nilly and all the while much gnashing of teeth and breast beating about the critical shortage of affordable housing is making the news daily.

  • Superdeformed

    Decent looking/fixable houses, DEMOLISHED.

    Rat infested eyesores/crack-houses, A-OK!

  • janniah

    what made this very interseting was how the house was very nice and cute
