The proposed 17 unit condo development at 3100 Banks Street was heavily opposed by neighbors at a recent city meeting, the Mid-City Messenger reports.

The developer, Cullen Maumus with the New Orleans Redevelopment Fund, is seeking to build the 3-story project mixed use project, and received permission to resubdivide two lots into a single last August. The condos units would be affordable, and the retail would include a restaurant or coffee shop.

A group of neighbors spoke in opposition to the development at the recent City Planning Commission meeting.  The most recent meeting was to approve a request to re-zone from two-family residential to a neighborhood mixed-use.

As a result of the opposition, the City Planning Commission unanimously voted to deny the rezoning request.  The matter now heads to the City Council for final decision.
