According to a story in the Times-Picayune:
New Orleans officials Monday said they have started handing out notices to owners of any property deemed to be an “imminent health threat,” giving them 30 business days to clean up the sites before the city sends in crews to demolish or gut delinquent buildings.
Someone sent me a listing of some properties in a couple of Excel files. I took the addresses in one file and threw them up on a map.
If you click on a dot you’ll get more info — much of which is inscrutable, but some of which makes sense, like if the property is targeted for gutting or demolition.
For what it’s worth, I believe it’s long past time the city moved to doing something about hazardous properties. Buildings that are in imminent danger of collapse should be torn down. But at the same time, I’m so used to the city bungling things that I think we have to keep a close eye on this process. I hope this helps.
Please note: The file I used listed only 186 addresses, though the article cites 267 properties. I don’t know how to explain the disparity. This map should not be considered exhaustive or authoritative.
Update: Here’s a map which lists the 20 properties in my zip code (70119) — most of which were not included in the previous map.
