A church owned by Solange in New Orleans has been ordered by the city to turn it down. The First Christian Church was purchased for an undisclosed price by the Noble Jones Trust, and the paperwork was signed by one of its trustees, Vernell Jackson Keys. Keys is a close friend of the Knowles family. The Orleans Parish Assessor’s Office also has on record the other property Noble Jones Trust owns at 927 St. Ann Str., which belongs to Solange. Neighbors say almost every day they’ve been hearing loud music being played for hours from inside the church. Some even said they’ve been having trouble sleeping because of the loud music. The owners got a letter from the city warning them the property is not permitted to be used as an arts studio because of zoning laws. A letter sent to the owners said, “Please contact the Department of Safety and Permits to discuss the use of the subject property. The property was formerly a place of worship, which was a permitted use in the District. The First Christian Church has not owned the property for the past year, so the Department needs confirmation that the new owners are using the property in compliance with regulations.”
