Comments: I am so concerned about what is happening in my neighborhood - the plan will need to show how you will avoid the negative impacts from this type of structure that has never existed in our neighborhood before. Bringing in 130+ housing units will add significantly to the traffic, wear and tear on our streets, loss of trees, more large trucks and delivery trucks who don't live in the neighborhood or care about our streets and families (including pets.)

There are also at least 4 hotel projects also planned for this area. Why are their hotels being built in my neighborhood? And then more rebuilding like the navy base - what is that going to do to our neighborhood? And a Cruise Terminal? Good god. Our neighborhood where we raise our kids, love on our neighbors, support each other - all of that is going to be lost. There is so much culture here, and in New Orleans, that is being pushed out. Our neighbors are artists and musicians and writers and teachers and nurses. We care about each other, but we are losing our neighborhood and our neighbors to development projects.
