These photos below were taken Saturday January 22, 2011. It is amazing how little has changed since we posted photos on the blog in 2009. What's even more disheartening is that we've been fighting to have the problems with this dangerous eyesore addressed for more than 5 years. Neighbors have taken the time to take the photos, report the property and attend the blight hearings. We even called in the Action Reporter. The propery was found guilty of having a dangerous pool and blight.
But we're still waiting for the conditions to improve.
According to the Assessor's website the ownership has changed since since our last round in the Blight Fight and the property which used to have a single owner now has 2. We want to ensure that we don't have to start the blight process all over again now that ownership has changed.
2935 Dante is now owned by
ADVANCE MORTG COMP LLC C/O R GERAGE
3621 RIDGELAKE DR/207
METAIRIE, LA 70002
and the pool @ 8232 Fig is now owned
2937 DANTE ST
NEW ORLEANS, LA 70118
We are hopeful the new owner will make progress on the pool property.
We've seen the trash containers come and go.
