Auto burglaries - GPS

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to take this time to inform you of a recent problem we have
been experiencing throughout District. We have been having a number
of reports of auto burglaries. In most of these cases the preferred
item has been GPS systems which are mounted to the vehicles
windshield. I would suggest that if you have this sort of device, you
remove it entirely (suction cup mount as well) and place it out of
sight when not in use. Also, please don’t leave anything valuable
(laptops, purses, etc.) lying in plain sight when you are away from
your car. Let’s not make it easy for them.

Thank you,

July 2010 Recovery Data

Recovery Data July 2010

See this Article from the Times Picayune:

NorthWest Carrollton is probably closer to 80% recovered than 89%.

We still have a significant number of houses that are:
- under repair or
- boarded and not being worked on or
- empty lots.

The empty lots are from:
- houses that have been torn down, many against the opposition of the neighborhood, some because they were allowed to decay beyond all hope of repair before something was done or
- the February 2007 Tornado or
- the Post Katrina fire that took out almost the entire block Carrollton-Fig-Dublin-Pritchard Place.
