Good News for New Orleans’ Residents, Now and Future

After the devastation Hurricane Katrina left behind in 2005, New Orleans has been struggling to recover and rebuild. While some areas of New Orleans feature rows of newly renovated homes, just down the street it’s as easy to see dilapidated, blighted homes. However, as of today, the number of these broken-down homes has reduced by nearly 20,000, a 32% decrease over the past 2.5 years.

The increase in renovation and rebuilding is a welcome sign to local residents in New Orleans. It also does much to boost the numbers of people moving to New Orleans or making the decision to stay. A rebound from such urban blight isn’t simple to achieve, but the neighborhoods especially hit by Katrina, like Broadmoor, which are rebounding provide a little light at the end of the tunnel. What do you think about the positive home development and renovation in New Orleans?
