Residents: New Orleans razed homes without consent
~Some residents are asking a judge to hold the city of New Orleans in contempt for allegedly demolishing structurally sound houses without notice and failing to maintain an accurate demolition list, in violation of a consent decree.

Vocal Local Attorney's Home Ends Up On Demolition List ~Squandered Heritage
We here at Squandered Heritage are running out of steam.
The Demolition machine is out of control, telling people they have 1 hour to come get their belongings and then demolishing under the guise of Imminent Danger of Collapse.

People who evacuated for Gustav came home and found a Executive Order which was issued by the Mayor to “streamline” the process. Instead what it did was create a wave of unchecked and hostile demolitions.

Please write to your Counsil members and ask them to halt the process until Safety and Permits merges their databases.
