We love our neighborhoods. Each and every one of them is unique and special and filled with a variety of characters that showcase the eclectic nature of our city. But sometimes those characters leave you scratching your head, wondering “what are they thinking?”. That’s generally the time you start digging around, looking for the path to reporting New Orleans neighborhood issues.
Maybe it’s the guy on your block running that illegal AirBnB. Or the investor who showed up to do a renovation but didn’t bother to get the appropriate permits. (You can always check for work permits here)
Perhaps it’s junk cars left abandoned on the block or dumpsters that were dropped in the street without permission.
We’ve seen people decide that their backyard is a perfectly acceptable place to paint cars, with overspray floating into the adjoining yards and onto the houses that surround them. Then there is the person that converted their raised basement into a banquet hall and held weddings, parties, and showers in the middle of a block of single family homes.
Now, we get it. No one wants to be that guy. The one who calls and reports the same person they wave to while picking up the mail or walking the dog.
But if you’ve had a talk with your neighbor and nothing has changed? Then it’s time to take the next step and the city makes it easy with an online system for reporting New Orleans neighborhood issues.
With just a few clicks, you can notify the city of the issue and go on with the rest of your day.
