Historical neighborhoods were leveled after the 2008 flood while the city rolled around in FEMA money rebuilding theaters better than ever and replacing buildings that didn't need replaced such as Public Works (now called City Services).  As of February 20, 2014 the city still hasn't demolished homes that were bought with public funds while rebuilt homes have been torn down.  Maybe it has to do with who owns these houses but one of them is the childhood home of a city council member, Ann Poe.  Local mainstream media news will only report that the city has recovered from the flood when it hasn't.
