NORA restarts its 'lot next door' program

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Starting today the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority again launches its "lot next door" program, allowing certain homeowners to purchase vacant NORA lots.

Any interested homeowners can start filling out an expression of interest form. There are required eligibility requirements that need to be met.

Owners must comply with city building codes and health and safety ordinances on all properties within Orleans Parish.

Owners must own a property that is occupied and in good standing with the city's Office of Safety and Permits. The property must also be in good standing with the Office of Code Enforcement at the time of application and closing
