The Broadmoor Improvement Association (BIA) will hold a meeting tonight: 7 pm Monday, March 18 at the Andrew H. Wilson Charter School (3617 General Pershing Street, please enter on the South Miro Street side) in the cafeteria. The meeting will focus on crime, particularly the recent daylight murder in the 4100 block of Washington Avenue, which marked the third murder in that block in less than two years.
“Broadmoor has demonstrated many times that when our backs are up against the wall, we respond and communally we solve problems,” wrote BIA president Kelli Wright in a recent letter to residents. “We will confront this scourge; we will search for answers and we will continue to work toward making Broadmoor a safer and better place to live.”
The meeting will provide residents an opportunity to air their concerns about violent crime and a recent increase in house burglaries during a Q&A period. New Orleans Police Department officers will also explain to residents what they can do to increase personal security.
New Orleans City Councilwoman (District B) LaToya Cantrell, who has previously voiced her frustration with the continuing violence on Washington Avenue, will be attending the meeting.
