To preserve the Vieux Carré as a national treasure, to maintain its quaint and distinctive character and to achieve in that historic, living neighborhood a quality of life which can be enjoyed by residents, fellow citizens, businesses and visitors.
Last week, VCPORA, French Quarter Citizens, Louisiana Landmarks Society, the Preservation Resource Center, Smart Growth for Louisiana, along with several French Quarter businesses owners and individuals, filed for an injunction to prevent the city from moving forward with the proposal for a 190′ tower on Royal Street.
Bon appetit and Happy Thanksgiving, friends, from all of us at VCPORA! Many thanks for all you are doing and will do in the future to protect the historic character of the Vieux Carré and the quality of life in this neighborhood.
