2006 Louisiana Laws - RS 19:136 — Purpose

PART III-G.  EXPROPRIATION OF ABANDONED OR BLIGHTED PROPERTY

BY A DECLARATION OF TAKING BY THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS AND

THE CITY OF GRAMBLING

§136.  Purpose

In an effort to control the rising number of abandoned or blighted properties throughout the state and to slow urban blight, the legislature finds it necessary to implement a mechanism by which the city of New Orleans and the city of Grambling are empowered to more readily obtain abandoned or blighted properties.  The provisions of this Part are intended to provide a means by which governing authorities may revitalize economically depressed areas by placing abandoned or blighted properties back into the economic stream of commerce through the rehabilitation of the abandoned or blighted property.  The procedure created by this Part shall be in addition to any other procedure authorized by law.

Acts 2003, No. 984, §1; Acts 2004, No. 755, §1, eff. July 6, 2004; Acts 2006, No. 196, §1.
