Mission:

Residents began meeting formally in July 2007 after complaining to city government regarding damage to street lights, parks and streets. (Having suffered the city-wide effects of the flood that followed Hurricane Katrina, this residential area near the Mirabeau breach of the London Canal had been further damaged by disaster relief vehicles and equipment work beginning in the Spring of 2006 through Spring 2007.) Residents began a campaign of telephoning, emailing, and letter-writing. With added guidance and support from A.C.O.R.N. and the Burbank Gardens Neighborhood Assn., government listened and eventually responded positively.

Current and future goals include: determining existing property covenants, formulate/update and protect property zoning, develop safe, clean, beautiful streets, parks, neutral grounds, and GARDENS! Assistance is needed in finding existing property “covenants” and zoning ordinances to prevent overpopulation that might result from any additional residential multi-family developments.

  • Neighborhood meetings are held monthly on the fourth Thursday, 6:30pm, @ 5506 Wickfield Dr, except during the months of November and December.***
