Want to Get Things Done?

We Can Do ItCan you think of a project in Faubourg St. John that you would like to make happen?

The great neighbors of Faubourg St. John are known for getting things done.

But, we can’t do it alone. Community sweat equity is important but money is the deciding factor on many projects.

Desmare Playground is an area in Faubourg St. John that could use some improvement.

How can we make that happen?

You have a voice in how your tax money is spent. Mayor Mitch Landrieu has announced a series of community meetings in each council district to discuss 2014 budget priorities. For more information about participatory budgeting along with where and when you can attend, please visit the link below:


Other neighborhoods will be presenting their needs/ideas at the city’s budget meetings. Unless we show up en masse to demand proper funding for Desmare Playground then our needs/ideas will get lost in the shuffle.

The meeting for District A is being held in Lakeview which has a very strong neighborhood organization. Unless you make it a point to attend and support the needs/ideas of Faubourg St. John your tax dollars will go to other worthy projects elsewhere.
