Um... would someone like to try their hand at explaining why, according to yesterday's Times-Picayune, Blanco, the Louisiana Housing Finance Agency and LA state treasurer Kennedy are squabbling over building these "Louisiana Cottages" in alternative housing communities a project worth $75.4 million? According to
the TP article, Mississippi has constructed 598 units and put people in 478 of them, and they're on private property.
So here's what I just don't get... what's up with building expensive temporary structures just to go back later and build something permanent? if they can be built on private property, why can't the $75 million just be given to people to start rebuilding their homes if they still need a place to live?
Am I missing something really important here or does this sound silly to everyone else too?
AhContraire-How do they do it where you live? You know, the "street medians" and all..
cback: Tents on street medians during Mardi Gras are less than 24 hours, typically like…
Tents and sofas? Has the city council ever seen the neutral grounds at Mardi Gras?…
When Led Zepplin got back together to make a movie concert called Decoration Day, Elmwood…
new orleans is going to play whack-a-mole with the tent cities, coolio!
This looks great.
