Size does matter

Our friends in the Faubourg Marigny need some help. One of the city’s most politically connected developers/destroyers is working his Rolodex to get a height variance of 25 feet for a condo development in the Marigny. This neighborhood, next to the French Quarter has maintained most of its historical charm and mixed use through volunteerism, hands on owners taking care with their preservation work, and entrepreneurial business owners using what was there to build their businesses rather than adding another monument to American greed. Condo developments are the interstates of the 21st Century: an attempt to divide and isolate more people from each other while making more money for a few.
The FMIA is a active organization and has rallied their membership, but ALL citizens need to stand up to this developer and his cronies, telling them NO once and for all.
