Monthly Board Meetings

Our board meetings are open to the public.  Attending is the best way to stay on top of the issues affecting your neighborhood!  We are continuously thankful to Felicity Church for providing our meeting space at 1220 Felicity Street. The meetings are held there every third Monday of the month at 6:30pm.  Please note, however, that regular board meetings are usually not held in January or August.  January is typically reserved for inducting the new board of directors, and August is usually reserved for social events!  Make sure to become a paying member and follow us on Facebook in order to stay in the loop!  

If you would like to present an issue, discuss a development, or if you are a developer participating in the Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP), please use the link below to get on the agenda.  Public comment is also taken at the end of the meeting, which is a great time to introduce yourself if you are new to the LGD.

Lafon Fountain Restoration

In 2016, we completed the Freeman Challenge, an initiative of The Greater New Orleans Foundation, raising nearly $100,000 for the restoration of the Lafon Fountain and an endowment fund for it's maintenance. It is our intent to fully restore this beautiful fountain which will be only the second privately maintained public fountain in the city (the first being the Coliseum Square Fountain, which we restored in 2007). 

Crime Cameras

In 2017, the LGDA partnered with Project NOLA, a networked crime camera non-profit, to install over 30, live-monitored security cameras in the LGD.  These remotely monitored cameras have already helped NOPD detectives to solve crimes across the city, and their presence acts as a strong deterrent to would be criminals.

If you'd like to host a camera, please contact us!  Hosts pay $15/month per camera.  Camera and installation costs are covered by funds raised by the LGDA.

Park Cleanup Days

We are always at work beautifying the parks and providing an additional level of maintenance and care beyond what the city can. Special park cleanup days are generally monthly and are announced by email. Refreshments are provided and its a great way to meet your neighbors, enjoy the park, and directly improve the neighborhood.

Our neighborhood features the greatest variety and availability of historic homes within the city. Every other year we have the opportunity to curate and present a themed selection for our popular home tour.

Live Oak Supper Club

The Live Oak Supper Club is our bi-annual Gala, our premier event. While the chef, venue, and entertainment vary from year to year, one thing is always true, these tickets go fast!
