We've asked the NOPD Quality of Life Officer
to please knock on the door of 2643
and have a chat with the folks about what sidewalks are for
STREETS are for.
It seems they would park on their front porch if they could.
And they have not responded to the flyers that have been placed on their
windshields advising them of the actual parking rules... well they did for a
little while but they seem to have forgotten.
When you park on the infrastructure (sidewalks, S&W) it BREAKS!!!!
Oh and people walking - you know the ones the sidewalks were intended for??? have to walk around. ... Not cool.
See the op ed from the TP below.
New orleans sidewalks are difficult to navigate: A letter to the editor
Published: Tuesday, February 28, 2012
My wife and I recently returned from our first visit to New Orleans, an absolutely wonderful city with a glaring flaw: the condition of the sidewalks in the older parts of town, particularly the Garden District.
My wife uses a wheelchair, which makes it extremely difficult to get around when the sidewalks resemble tank traps. We tried to avoid some of the really bad spots by detouring to the streets, but they weren't much better.
I hope that New Orleans finds a way to repair its sidewalks -- and install wheelchair ramps at all street corners-- before we make our second visit. Perhaps a fee on property owners would provide the revenue. That's a system Sacramento has used to repair sidewalks in its older neighborhoods.
