Leah Graeff, Preferred Outcome, digital collage, 2017
At the first meeting I attended about the I-49 Connector, my neighborhood was called “disinvested” by DOTD and One Acadiana. That was three years after I first moved into Sterling Grove. The remnants of this demolished house, owned by DOTD, were removed in January of this year, after blocking the sidewalk with debris for months.
