Oct. 8 - City Council Finally Meeting Its Meeting Obligation

Come to the City Council chambers this Friday to express any sentiments you may have on the dismantling of Lower Mid-City - and call your Council Member and the Mayor to demand a moratorium on further demolitions until financial and legal irregularities can be addressed!

Residents of the LSU/VA Footprint are not currently scheduled to present at the meeting, even though the meeting is being held for their benefit.  The City Council's own earlier April resolution mandates that it hold regular meetings with residents in the LSU/VA Footprint to inform them as to what is being done to their neighborhood.
