PUBLISHED ON DECEMBER 19TH BEFORE THE CITY HALL MEETINGS - IT SEEMS CITY COUNCIL WAS WORKING ON THEIR PREPARED STATEMENTS BEFORE HEARINGS

This is a reposting from the December 19th posting:
An update on the New Orleans Public Housing Demoltions issue from Bill Quigley at


Tracie Washington and I had a brief meeting with Council members Clarkson and Fielkow asking that they: create a process for resident consultation; do a 60 day moratorium; create a blue ribbon board of trusted citizens to nail down the facts and make recommendations; and guarantee one for one replacement.


They were polite and clear and firm.
There will be a vote on Thursday 20th.
There will be no moratorium.
The council will approve demolition on all developments.



We asked. They answered. Be prepared.
