3023 Dumaine video

Neighbors complained to the Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association. FSJNA took action and the property was adjudicated for blight.

Fines accrued on the properties but the owner chose to continue to ignore the situation.

On Feb. 11, 2010, the owner went to the HDLC to get approval to demolish the once beautiful historic properties. The demolition application was withdrawn by code enforcement.

The owner continued to do nothing to mitigate the blight at 3023-3029 Dumaine. Over a year later, once again, on April 14, 2011, the owner tried to get approval from the HDLC to demolish the property. The proposal resulted in a no action vote by the HDLC. The Board could not agree on demolition.

So, now what? Because of the massive fines that have occurred due to the owner’s stalwart stance against doing the right thing by his neighbors, the property will likely go up for bid at a Sheriff’s sale.
