It is with a heavy heart that we are cancelling the Mardi Gras parade for Sunday; however, we are still having the Crawfish Boil which begins at 4:30 in the Event Tent. $10 for crawfish, corn, potatoes, sweet tea, Natchitoches Meat Pies & “MY” Crawfish Chowder sample. OR just come to hear Zydeco Music performed by Southside Playboys. Come Play With Us! Food is first come, first served!
Due to the severity of the snow & wind chill factors and since we cannot meet with the City regarding the plowing of the alleys in this short time frame, the Board has decided the following:
During this snow, the General Assembly will plow the alleys within New Town except for those already approved by the City:
North Canal Way alley - west of Canal St. between Hempstead St. and North New Town Ave.
South Canal Way alley – west of Canal St. between South New Town Ave. and Arpent St.
Hempstead Place alley – south of Hempstead St. west of Canal St.
Shutten Way alley – east of Shutten St. between Hempstead St. and Galt House Dr.
Hempstead Way alley
However, please realize the snow has to go somewhere & when they plow, it may pile in front of your driveway & garage - you will be responsible for that area. This plowing of the alleys does NOT insure that the GA will plow alleys in the future. We are scheduling a meeting with the City. Thank you.
ANNUAL ASSESSMENT NOTIFICATION FOR 2014
On behalf of the Board of Governors for the New Town at St. Charles General Assembly, expenses and income were reviewed and the Board has decided not to raise assessments for 2014. Typically, New Town assessments are due January 1, 2014, and considered delinquent after January 31, 2014. Payments received after January 31, 2014, will be assessed a $15.00 late notice administrative charge and interest as required by the governing documents. However, this year we are offering an “Early Pay” option:
If your payment is received by December 15, 2013 – then your portion of the 2014 assessment will be the following rather than the assessment amount listed on the enclosed statement:
Type Early Pay Option 2014 Assessment

Single Family Detached 40’ Greater $885.16 $925.67

“Early Pay” option is at the 2011 assessment rate (5% discount from 2014). Assessment rate for 2014 remains the same as 2013 with no increase. All accounts must be current to be eligible for this discount. If we do not receive your payment by December 15, 2013, you will be responsible for the FULL 2014 assessment amount listed above.
Enclosed is a copy of your statement for the 2014 annual assessment. You may pay online at www.ntga.net (you will need your account number 800-____). To ensure proper credit, please remit payment to the designated address as indicated on your statement. Please include the bottom portion of your statement with your payment and make checks payable to New Town at St. Charles General Assembly (NTGA). Please allow a reasonable amount of time for postal delivery and do not include any business correspondence or billing inquiries with your payment.
