2010 Avenue S
October 8, 2012
As you know, a letter was posted on your doors a couple of
weeks ago, September 25 to be precise, that mainly concerned relationships
among residents of the New Orleans Apartment complex and that raised
management's concern about residents contacting the property manager and/or the
Lubbock police department over what can only be called petty disputes, disputes
that neither the property manager nor the police can resolve. For example, one
resident called the property manager to complain that he could not get to sleep
due to the noise created by his neighbor showering.
Unfortunately, and much to our embarrassment, that letter showed careless diction that has offended some of our residents. While the letter was posted two weeks ago, only late last week did it become the subject of some public attention that may have left you uncomfortable.
We apologize to any resident for whom our poor choice of words caused offense and to others who were disturbed by the unwanted attention. Please know that that letter represents nothing more than the fact that we are not professional writers and does not reflect in any way whatsoever our attitudes or beliefs about any individual or group of individuals.
Indeed, we appreciate all our residents, and we especially appreciate their diversity. The undersigned herself is a Filipina, the onsite property manager is a Native American, and our residents are composed of African-Americans, Mexican-Americans and other Hispanics, and Caucasians. Many of you can attest to the fact that we have a long history of working with, and accommodating, our residents on a number of issues, including rent payment, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, sex or creed.
Therefore, without question, it can be said that New Orleans Apartments, LLC does not discriminates on the basis of any legally protected class. We proudly comply with all federal, state, and local housing statutes, rules, regulations, and court decisions.
While this may be your permanent or temporary home, our
relationship with you is also a business one, and we recognize that arbitrary
discrimination against classes of people is not good for business. However,
neither it is good business to have a reputation as a place to which the
We encourage you to get to know your neighbors and to learn to work with one another to make your apartment community safer, cleaner, and quieter.
