      > right of a Louisiana Land Trust (LLT) lot or a property deemed blighted
      > by the City of New Orleans? If the answer to these questions is "yes",
      > then you may be eligible to participate in the City's Lot Next Door
      > program. NORA has analyzed more than 5,000 blighted and LLT properties
      > to determine whether neighboring homeowners might be eligible to
      > purchase those properties under the City's recent ordinance. During
      > July, NORA will send initial eligibility letters via registered mail to
      > inform potentially eligible purchasers and provide more information on
      > applicable Lot Next Door processes. These letters will provide eligible
      > homeowners with initial notice of their right and NORA asks that they
      > return a statement of interest to NORA. However, no sales will be made
      > until NORA acquires these properties and evaluates eligibility.
