[ARCHIVED] Blight Committee to meet Tuesday, April 10

Join Councilwoman Tara Wicker and members of the Metro Council's Blight Committee for the next committee meeting which will be held on Tuesday, April 10, at 1:30 p.m. in Room 801, City Hall, located at 222 Saint Louis St.

Topics to be discussed will include: contract for trash pick-up on vacant lots; addressing and improving the flaws in the current Blight Court system; a model initiative for blight elimination and creative re-use; and City-Parish code enforcement planning.

"This committee has already identified several issues that we know to be key contributors toward the current blight situation throughout our city and parish. In addition, we have identified processes and approaches we believe will expedite the eradication of blight through preventive measures to deal with this issue at the onset, instead of once it becomes a major problem," said Councilwoman Tara Wicker. "I am very pleased with the work so far of this committee and look forward to the recommendations that will come forth in the weeks to come."

For more information contact Councilwoman Tara Wicker at (225) 389-8720 or (225) 317-1849.
