July 13, 2012

NEW ORLEANS, LA-- On Saturday, July 14, Mayor Mitch Landrieu along with City officials, local organizations and local citizens will participate in the first “NOLA FOR LIFE Volunteer Day.”  During this time, citizens, city agencies and the NOPD will team up to clean up crime hot spots in our community.  This event is part of the Mayor’s NOLA FOR LIFE plan.  

The focus will be in the area around Taylor Playground/Hoffman Triangle and around Hardin Playground in the Seventh Ward.

Volunteer activities will include improvements to both playgrounds, and neighborhood beautification along the surrounding streets within the designated borders. In addition to volunteers, the effort will include blight eradication and beautification efforts from City departments and agencies including Code Enforcement & Hearings Bureau, NOPD (Quality of Life officers), Sanitation, NORD, Public Works, Parks & Parkways, Sheriff’s Office, Office of Neighborhood Engagement and Mosquito, Rodent & Termite Control Board. The City will repair street lights, replace missing street signs, remove abandoned cars, cut overgrown lots, and perform code enforcement.

Also, the following 2 properties are scheduled to be demolished on Saturday:

  • 1978-80 N. Dorgenois
  • 2715 S. Galvez

Partnering with the City of New Orleans in this effort are Rebuilding Together New Orleans, Hands On New Orleans, the Young Leadership Council and Rouse’s.
