The City of New Orleans is taking steps to prevent the New Year's Eve Bonfire (typically in the 4200 Block of Orleans Avenue), due to the risk to public safety and violation of a number of City codes. An informational session will be jointly hosted by NOPD, NOFD, and Parks & Parkways on Monday December 22, 2008 at 6:30pm, at Grace Episcopal Church, 3700 Canal Street. The purpose of the session is to proactively inform residents and business owners about the City's enforcement plans for the night of the event.
MCNO has questioned whether an engineered bonfire could receive a permit, and was told that City Code prevents any permit for an open burn on this neutral ground because of the proximity to homes. MCNO also questioned whether any permits for a block party, without a fire, might be issued. This is a possibility, should the organizers of the NYE event wish to pursue it through the normal permitting channels.

Fire Department representatives will be distributing flyers about the informational session for a 2-3 block radius around the event site starting tomorrow. Please pass this information on to your Mid-City friends and Neighbors.
