City of LC moves forward with "Lot Next Door Program"

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Some North Lake Charles residents could soon acquire property next door that's sat vacant for years.

Rather than lift the moratorium on adjudicated properties, the Lake Charles City Council is moving forward with the "Lot Next Door Program."

Working with the North Lake Charles Redevelopment Authority, the program will allow immediate neighbors of blighted properties under 6,000 square feet to acquire that property's deed.

Eligible property owners can find out all the details at a meeting on August 19 at the MLK Center on North Simmons Street. The meeting begins at 6 p.m.
