On November 4, 2008 the voters of the Upper Audubon Security District (UASD) voted overwhelmingly to fee every parcel in the district $500 to pay for additonal security. The district boundaries are from St. Charles Avenue (riverside) to Magazine Street (lakeside) from Audubon Park to Broadway (both sides). All residents living within the boundaries enjoy the benefits of the patrol service.
