A local food desert initiative is developing a fund to put grocery stores back on Northside neighborhood blocks.
Bit by bit, LCG is tackling a frustrating and costly problem that has festered for decades. With well over 1,000 adjudicated properties on the rolls at any one time, there’s a long way to go. And for those who live next to the properties, resolution can’t come fast enough.
The gist: A cross-sector alliance of agencies, nonprofits and community organizers soft-launched a coalition to develop a comprehensive housing strategy for Lafayette Parish.
