~Editilla Trowtellas~ We watched and heard Mayor Mitch'mo and Chief Slurpy say that Tents and Furniture were not going to be allowed on the neutral ground. Chief Slurpy said that such real estate holdings will be moved.

PARKS & PARKWAYS NEUTRAL GROUND ENFORCEMENT
The city’s neutral grounds are the direct responsibility of the Department of Parks and Parkways; therefore, any prohibited items that are placed on the neutral grounds will be removed and disposed of immediately.
The following rules are being enforced:
- No Port-A-Lets can be placed on neutral grounds.
- No bulky furniture can be placed on neutral grounds.
- No structures can be erected (i.e. viewing stands, bleachers). The only allowed structures are those that are provided by the City Of New Orleans in city designated areas or those on privately owned properties that have been granted permission and issued permits by the City’s Department of Safety and Permits.
- No roping off or placement of cones or other materials for designation of viewing areas as neutral grounds are public green spaces.
- No cooking appliances can be placed on neutral grounds
