The Freret Neighbors United will hold an extended meeting tonight (Tuesday, March 12) to discuss a proposed new security district in the neighborhood, and the Milan Focus Group will meet Wednesday to hear from city and police officials.
The Neighbors United meeting will convene at Samuel Green Charter School at 6 p.m. for neighbors to socialize, and the agenda items will begin at 6:30 p.m. In addition to the security-district proposal — a $300 fee on property taxes to pay for a 24-hour private patrol officer — the group will also prioritize infrastructure needs in the neighborhood to present to the city.
Anyone who cannot attend is welcome to join the ongoing discussions at the groups Facebook page.
The Milan Focus Group will hold its monthly meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Atkinson-Stern Tennis Center, 4025 S. Saratoga Street. Among the agenda items are a visit from District B Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell, a discussion with NOPD Sixth District leaders about crime and the upcoming anti-crime march, and updates on business and blight in the neighborhood.
