As Lent begins, the remainder of the week following Mardi Gras has seen a number of regularly-occurring community meetings canceled or postponed until later in the month.
Most notable among the meetings still confirmed for their regular times may be Thursday’s BlightStat meeting of city officials, which will provide an update on the myriad issues confronting the Landrieu administration’s efforts to reduce blight in the city. Among recent topics, the meetings have discussed the end of the long hiatus on clearing vacant Uptown lots.
For full details on Uptown-area civic meetings and cultural offerings over the next two days, see our calendar below. (Among the cancellations and postponements are the weekly meeting of the NOPD Second District, and the monthly meetings of the Irish Channel and Carrollton-Riverbend neighborhood associations.)
