Louisiana Housing Alliance holds Listening Tour

Louisiana residents who’d like to ask questions about Louisiana housing policy on issues such blight, foreclosures, sidewalks, street signs and temporary housing can do so at one of a series of Listening Tours scheduled Monday through Aug. 30.

The Louisiana Housing Alliance Listening Tour holds sessions in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Lafayette, Covington, Alexandria, Shreveport, Lake Charles and Houma.

LHA is a nonprofit coalition that works to ensure the preservation and production of quality, affordable housing for low- and moderate-income Louisianians and for those with special needs. The organization also works to discover ways to make Louisiana housing policies fair for all residents and to educate the public on housing policy and on information such as legislation that requires owners be given 30 days notice of a foreclosure, said Ashley Lewis, communications specialist at LHA.

The Listening Tour stops include these locations:

Baton Rouge: 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday at the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, 402 N. Fourth St.

New Orleans: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday at Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center, 2200 Lafitte St.

Lafayette: 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday in the Iberia Bank board room, 200 W. Congress St.

Covington: 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 30 at the Covington branch library, 310 W. 21st Ave.
