The Preservation Resource Center is once again having their popular Great Neighborhood Sellabration and I am once again organizing a Carrollton table for the event–which will be THIS SATURDAY.
If anyone would like to come out and help for a couple of hours it would be great. I will be there before 9:00 AM and the event runs till 2:00 PM. Help in the later half would be most appreciated. All you need to do is be prepared to talk to people about our neighborhood. Most of the attendees are prospective homebuyers. Let’s tell them why Carrollton is a good investment and a good place to live.
Location: The PRC building, 923 Tchoupitoulas, which is near Cochon in the Warehouse District.

We are a non-profit agency that aids and enhances the City Assisted Evacuation (CAE) – a free, citywide public evacuation option that was one of the major improvements in the post-Hurricane Katrina recovery of New Orleans. The CAE can accommodate the over 30,000 residents who lack the ability to evacuate in the event of a mandatory evacuation.
Evacuteer.org has proposed a collaborative effort between the Arts Council of New Orleans and the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness to commission 17 public art pieces, called EvacuSpots, to serve as visually-striking and memorable rallying points in case of an evacuation of New Orleans. These 14-foot tall EvacuSpots are currently being installed in your neighborhoods for your neighbors. It is our hope for community leaders and organizations, like yours, to embrace these EvacuSpots as your own. You know your neighbors better than we do and thus know how best to help them during an evacuation.
Becoming a volunteer is simple; we bring the 1.5 hour training to your facility at a time that is convenient and provide refreshments or volunteers can come to sessions at City Hall (click this link for dates and times: evacuteer training). Once trained, your team is prepared to lead and assist at Palmer Park EvacuSpot. We look forward to working with you to help keep our neighborhoods ready for this Hurricane Season.
