An interesting story

It's hard to know what interesting side story regarding the LSU/VA project will emerge next.

Today, I learned that at least a few individuals are now calling organizations around town trying to figure out how to buy moved VA houses.  And most of the houses are still very much in transition back to fully renovated status.

In the example related to me today, the caller sought to find out how to buy a house in the greater Mid-City/Parkview neighborhood (with the specific intent of living in the house).

That's a good sign for the long-term viability of the moved houses, even if about a third of the VA moved houses remain in less than ideal condition, for some inexplicable reason.  The other two thirds are at least roofed and secured.

"if about a third of the VA moved houses remain in less than ideal condition, for some inexplicable reason."

That actually should be investigated.

Which groups and/or individuals own the lots?

Which groups and/or individuals took took houses and left them to rot?
