The New Orleans City Council’s Housing and Human Needs Committee meets at 10 a.m. today to discuss three issues:

  • Amendments to the Lot Next Door program in order to widen the pool of eligible buyers
  • Cases in which townhouses and condos have not been renovated, causing problems for their neighbors
  • What can be done to get more people to take advantage of the Small Rental Property Program, a Road Home program meant to expand the availability of rental properties
