I'm not sure how much more they can do with the riverfront considering the rail line and the fact that it serves a function as the levee. What they could set up a wildflower area like on Exxon's greenbelt. I just hope they extend wrought iron fence and landscaping from the train station to the other side.
I agree, the Lexington Park and Pelican Lakes subdivisions will have back alleys with a facade facing the actual street but the others will have the garage dominating the facade. Like I had mentioned before, the garage dominating facade subdivision should do like some of the European neighborhoods seem to do and not have grass but just use the whole "front yard" for landscaping.
Well that's partially true but I don't think it's the school systems fault entirely. I think people seem to think the EBR school system is holding out on them with a Mickey Mouse sorcerer's apprentice magic wand in a open-in-case-of-emergency like fire extinguisher case. They can only do so much if the children are good students and children can only do so well if they only consume fast food and junk media and have low parent involvement.
It may be true that other cities have more crime, but they also have a lot more resources, amenities, and desireable suburbs to balance it out. Although I will say that atleast the violent crime here doesn't seem to be random.
