We love our Marigny neighborhood full of beautiful, historic homes and businesses. But we all know that caring for older properties is challenging, especially in a city built on water, surrounded by water, and inhabited by bugs that eat our wood and refresh from the groundswell. And when a building's general maintenance is deferred or neglected, it can fall into disrepair. A simple dripping leak can become a monster project in a matter of time. And in New Orleans, major neglect of a property with our rain, humidity, and heat, means trouble. Unfortunately we've seen this first hand in our neighborhood, and are attempting to bring to light a short list of properties that have been nominated as neighborhood blight. Our definition of blight is a property that is in danger of collapse and/or has become a health or safety hazard. If you would like to nominate a property for our attention, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to attend any of our monthly meetings to get updates on properties currently on our list.
