Surely you've seen the signs by now. “Fix My Streets! I Pay My Taxes,” they read. It's a shame it is an argument that has to be made, but it is one that is easily and often made. You see, 'round here, it's generally accepted as a "universal truth" that the Lake Area of New Orleans has the worst streets, perhaps even in the entire Gulf South. There's no dispute the streets need fixing. The part of the argument that needs exploring is the "I Pay My Taxes" part. Does that part of the argument hold as much water as the streets that need fixing? Let's explore that.

In 2013, the City of New Orleans and evacuteer.org [external link] unveiled new artwork to mark the 17 designated City evacuation pick-up points where citizens may go during a mandatory evacuation. Our Lakeview EvacuSpot is located at the Smith Library Bus Stop at 6300 Canal Boulevard.
How Mandatory Evacuations Works
In the case of a dangerous or severe storm, generally Category 3 hurricane or higher, the City will call a mandatory evacuation. During a mandatory evacuation all citizens must leave the City of New Orleans until officials have designated the city safe for re-entry.
