Public Notice Regarding Historic Review of Privately-Owned Residential Buildings Proposed for Demolition in Orleans Parish, Louisiana - Seeking Public Comment

The high winds and heavy rains of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the subsequent widespread flooding severely damaged many buildings in Orleans Parish. In the aftermath of the hurricanes, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is issuing this public notice as part of its responsibilities under 36 CFR Part 800, the regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. This notice applies to activities carried out by the Public Assistance (PA) program implemented under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C.§§ 5152-5206.

The City of New Orleans has determined that many of the buildings severely damaged by the hurricanes are an imminent threat to public health and safety. FEMA is proposing to fund the demolition of privately-owned residential buildings that pose such a threat. The regulations at36 CFR Part 800 require FEMA, as the funding agency, to identify if any of the buildings proposed for demolition are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places; to assess the effect the demolition will have on historic properties; and to seek ways to avoid, minimize, or mitigate any adverse effects.

FEMA, in consultation with SHPO, has found 224 buildings eligible for the National Register and is requesting the aid of the public in identifying alternatives to demolition. Any member of the public who has specific practical information on feasible alternatives to demolition for any of these buildings is encouraged to respond. Alternative proposals should include a source of funding for stabilization and/or repairs and the timeframe required to accomplish these actions.

For a list of the property addresses and to suggest specific alternatives to demolition, visit www.crt.state.la.us/culturalassets/fema106. This information will be accepted for a 15-day period beginning on October 21, 2011. Comments should be submitted to FEMA at the website or by regular mail to:

Historic Preservation
1 Seine Court
New Orleans, LA 70114

If mailed, comments must be physically received at this address by November 4, 2011.

NOTE: This list has been compiled using the best information available; however the status of these buildings is continually evolving. These buildings are potentially eligible for FEMA-funded demolition; FEMA reviewed these buildings under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and identified them as historic. Since then, these buildings may have been renovated or demolished with other funding.
