Mid-Citizens know the benefits of an increased police presence and have created the Mid-City Security District (MCSD) to make our neighborhood safer.
After a 70% majority vote, the MCSD became a political subdivision of the State of Louisiana in 2008 and was renewed in 2014. Since the MCSD became effective in 2009, crime rates in our neighborhood have dropped significantly. Current Legislative statute
The MCSD is governed by a a board of five commissioners, all of whom live in the district and have full voting privileges on matters brought before the board. Commissioners are decided by appointment. MCNO appoints four of the five commissioners, one of whom must be from the City Park Triangle area, and Parkview Neighborhood Association appoints one.
The Mid-City Security District Board meets every third Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Mid-City branch of the New Orleans Public Library, 4140 Canal St, and the meetings are open to the public. Please check the MCSD website for more information.
You can contact the Board of Commissioners via email.
