Neighborhood Survey – Washington Avenue


Garden District Residents:

The Garden District Association invites you to participate in a very brief survey regarding Washington Avenue. This information is being collected in response to request from some neighbors along Washington to study the best way to manage the traffic on the street.  We encourage your involvement.

One response per household allowed.    Deadline:  October 11  

New Condo Building Approved for 2400 Block of St. Charles


Yesterday, the City Planning Commission approved the request for a new 10-unit condominium building to be constructed in the 2400 block of St. Charles Avenue.   Two ranch style homes are slated for demolition to allow for this new building.  The Garden District Association, led by it president Andre Gaudin,  opposed the 17-foot height waiver requested and many neighbors opposed the construction based on its height, massing and close proximity to the adjacent  building.  To read more about the hearing, please see the article in the Uptown Messenger via this link.   The measure will go to the City Council for approval or denial.
