    • What if the recent city council voted to deny demolition, wouldn’t the owner have to weatherize and enclose the building within a certain time period or get fined again for demolition by neglect? Can the people of uptown as an aggregate appeal this city council vote? Appeal!!

  1. This is ridiculous. That house is ugly and about as historic as 1950s cracker box houses are in the US Midwest. I see the case for certain New Orleans homes, but this eyesore needs to be taken down asap! Why not institute guidelines with the architects to have them incorporate historic elements into the new build??
