Open Letters: Future of N.O.’s Blight Programs

• Bureau of Governmental Research


BGR has been conducting extensive research on blighted property issues and blight remediation programs in New Orleans and is preparing a study for future publication. Drawing on that research, it is also responding to current developments. On December 11, BGR sent a letter to the City’s Office of Recovery Management recommending changes to local blighted property programs. The week before, it sent a letter to the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority regarding its proposal to the Louisiana Recovery Authority for Hurricane Katrina-damaged properties the State is acquiring through the Road Home program.
