Saturday 3.17.12

Heads up neighbors, clients and team!

Dear Neighbors:  

Just a reminder:  The St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held next Saturday on March 17, St. Patricks Day.   It will begin at 1 pm as usual and last til approximately 5 pm.  The route will remain the same beginning near St. Mary and Magazine, turn on Jackson to St. Charles to Louisiana , to Magazine and back to Jackson Avenue.  As before, ingress and egress points for the neighborhood will be at Washington  Avenue both at St. Charles and Magazine.  These intersections will be monitored by rank officers with the NOPD.  Because vehicles will not be able to cross the route unless the officer can safely help you do so during a break in the parade, please plan ahead and allow extra travel time.   

Also, please note that since the parade is actually occurring on the official St. Patrick's Day, it is likely that crowds along Magazine Street will be larger than normal because of the St. Patrick's Day parties in the area. 

The GDSD patrol will be on duty as always around the clock.  Please do not hesitate to contact them if needed.  899-4373

For your safety and the safety of others, please do not drink and drive.
