We would all hope that the reconstruction of sections of New Orleans would have been further along (almost two years since hurricane Katrina) but unfortunately it’s not and now homeowners are facing another hurdle in rebuilding their homes because the city requires additional permits to reconstruct in historic districts.
It’s important to maintain the integrity of a historical neighborhood but quite another to deny a homeowner the right to rebuild their bathroom wall or front porch because they don’t have the money or patience to search out a period specific hinge or siding. There must be a happy medium here. Your thoughts?
