“It's going to make people feel the area is safer than it may be perceived to be today, and will make the area one of the most attractive for the entire city.”
Downtown Development District head Kurt Weigle on the ‘benefits’ of demolishing the Iberville Public Housing development
Tell Kurt Weigle and the
Downtown Development District:
HANDS OFF IBERVILLE!!!!
Downtown Development District (DDD) representative Henry Charlot must resign as a member and chair of the Iberville Advisory Committee. Unbelievably, the Housing Authority of New Orleans’ top lawyer, Wayne Woods, appointed a representative of the DDD to the Iberville Advisory Committee (IAC). The IAC is commissioned with developing a plan for the future of the development. Yet, the DDD, and its director Kurt Weigle, have long made clear they want to eliminate Iberville as a Public Housing development. Not only is Henry Charlot, the DDD representative, on the IAC, but he is the chair!! Nevertheless, Wayne Woods rejected C3/Hands Off Iberville’s participation since “we have an agenda”. Yes we do: To defend Iberville as Public Housing. Join us as we fight for this people’s agenda, by demanding that 1. Kurt Weigle remove his outfit from the IAC. 2. All the units at Iberville remain as Public Housing. 3. The Federal government immediately implement a massive, national Public Works plan to rebuild and expand Public Housing and the Public Sector.
