Public Notice NHPA Seeking Public Comment for Privately-Owned Residential Buildings Proposed for Demolition in Orleans Parish, Louisiana

Map of approximate location of proposed demolitions The City of New Orleans has determined that thirteen residential buildings severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina and subsequent flooding are a threat to public health and safety and has requested that FEMA provide funds1 to demolish these privately-owned residential buildings that pose such a threat.

Federal regulations require FEMA, as the funding agency, to identify if any of the buildings proposed for demolition are historic (eligible for the National Register of Historic Places); to assess the effect the demolition will have on historic properties; and to seek ways to avoid, minimize, or mitigate any adverse effects.

FEMA seeks your input to determine if any of these thirteen buildings proposed for demolition by the City of New Orleans (listed below) are historic, or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Anyone who has specific, documented evidence of a property's association with historic events or people is encouraged to provide this information to FEMA by September 3, 2014.
