8424-26 Apple Street Blight - Request for Action

Email sent to City of New Orleans

NorthWest Carrollton - bounded by Earhart-Carrollton-Claiborne-Leonidas
would like to report 8424-26 Apple Street for blight.

The alleyway between the buildings is not secure. There is still roofing material and debris in the yard from Katrina. The back yard is used for drug deals, prostitution and loitering. It is a dangerous place. Especially considering that children attend dance classes next door. The Dance Studio was painted by Lutheran volunteers July 24-26th, 2009. We have a tree planting scheduled for November 2009. We are actively working with NOPD on the drug dealing issues on Apple Street. We would like the support of the City of New Orleans on blight and health issues.

Please see the attached Photos taken July 24, 2008

Thank you very much for your response.
Here are some additional pictures of the front of the house.
In my last drive by I noticed the doors are not secure.
