Side yard at 914 Dante St.

For those of you who have not seen the space that is proposed to be subdivided and developed, here are pictures.


914 Dante St.

I urge everyone to go have a look at the lovely park-like side yard at 914 Dante St. This is what a real estate agent and the owner are trying to destroy, to create a narrow subdivision on which to build a house. There are matures trees (oak, magnolia, camphor, crepe myrtle), old winding brick pathways, and it is, quite frankly, a peaceful green space with no paving–just some benches, chairs, and a chicken coop. The side yard is part of the historic site of a two-story historic building that dates from the Civil War. The site and building are featured in Cangelosi’s New Orleans Architecture: Carrollton book. The building is a grandfathered-in non-conforming six-unit apartment building.

Last week, CRNA requested a public hearing from the CPC. No word back yet.

Agenda: 8 April CRNA meeting

All are welcome.

This month, we’re going to catch up with ourselves a bit. I hope our new members will join us! (Logan, with the Alliance for Affordability may sit in, but she’ll join us in our May meeting.)

Melissa has been leading a working group’s efforts to get info about the SWB industrial noise and proposed mitigation, measured noise levels, and more. Outstanding work that continues. But she’ll be out of town, so I hope you’ve read the summary she sent yesterday about her and Andreas’ meeting with Ghassan.

A number of neighbors and residents are very concerned about the proposed subdivision of a historic site at 914 Dante St. Thanks to Joe’s efforts, the real estate agent held a Zoom NPP meeting yesterday. A bunch of us are zooming tomorrow afternoon (Saturday 4/3) about next steps.

I continue to try to get Trinity Christian Community to clean up their vacant lots at 1719-1723 Monroe St., which have become dump sites.

And we need to have a fun, relaxing picnic at the end of May. 🙂
