Intended to encourage our children to understand the entrepreneurial process, build community and provide a platform for our future leaders of tomorrow, the Children's Business Fair is open to Lakeview community members between the ages of 5-18. While parents are encouraged to help his or her child as much as necessary, the child should work as independently as possible.

Preconstruction activities including surveying, soil sampling and test pile driving are or will be under way at all three canals in the next few weeks; major construction activities will begin in the fall.

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.

Burglary is usually a crime of opportunity. Burglars normally devote relatively little time to plan their actions. Therefore, the more obstacles that are in the way the less likely that the crime will occur.
Basic Home Target Hardening Techniques
- All exterior doors should be metal or solid wood (2 3/4" thick is preferred), and have strong door hinges on the inside of the door.
- Install impact resistant glass in any location within 42” of a door lock. This will make it more difficult to break the glass, reach in, and unlock the door.
- Properly install doorframes on all exterior doors and doors from attached garages so they cannot be spread apart.
- Install security type door strikes on all exterior doors.
- Install a peephole or wide-angle viewer in all entry doors so that you can see who is outside without opening the door.
