    Memphis International Airport

    MBJ details more about the consolidated car rental facility. Anyone have ideas about where the future greyhound station is in relation to this site? What about a potential stop on any planned light rail line? http://memphis.bizjournals.com/memphis/sto...7300800^1449349

    Memphis International Airport

    The Memphis International Airport is the hub of the Memphis economy. As such, the Memphis and Shelby county government should be investing more in it and in the surrounding community to keep this hub growing, adding fuel to the local econimy, and building on the potential of the airport to become an aerotropolis by taking advantage of FedEx. Please see this site on SmartCity. It is an interesting discussion and one we should be having here as we talk about the airport. And we need to encourage those in urban planning and government to take the bold steps needed. Memphis has a wonderful opportunity and a head start. The question is if it will move to do what it takes. Or will Asian cities like Hong Kong or middle eastern cities like Dubai overtake Memphis. http://smartcitymemphis.blogspot.com/2007/...project_18.html

    Moving to Memphis?

    I wanted to post this bit of information for anyone just out of college (or around that age) to about 40 years old. If you are in that age range and are moving to Memphis or have been in Memphis only a short while and you want to know what there is to do, where to live, where are places to eat or check out, what are the cultural activities Memphis has to offer, etc then I highly recommend contacting MPACT (www.mpactmemphis.org). This is a non-profit organization made up of young professionals to help other young professionals. It is a group of people who are dedicated to helping grow the Memphis community into a better city. They are all volunteers who dedicate their free time to this effort. They come from companies in Memphis like FedEx, IP, Autozone, Marsh, Autozone, Medtronic, First Tennesse Bank, Memphis Redbirds, Memphis Grizzlies, Baptist Hospitals, Service Master, Destination King, St. Jude, Rhodes College, and a lot of the other for profit and non-profit organizations. They are in every field from doctors, business people, education, charities, politics, journalism, etc. Their goal is to help you learn about what Memphis has to offer. It is a good way to network in the community in order to learn almost anything you want form job contacts to where to live. So please contact them, visit their website, and check out all they have to offer you. They will be glad to help. Why? Because they want your experience in Memphis to be great so that you add more to the community which makes it a better place for all of us. That in turn attracts more industry, attracts more investment in the Memphis area, and benefits all our qualities of life. I hope this helps you out! P.S .They do hold annual parties and monthly social gatherings so you'll meet lots of young professional people to help form your social group as well as help you find your niche! As an example, this past summer 2006, they held 2 parties at the rooftop of the Lofts Apartments downtown in the South Main art district with free food and free drinks (including wine and beer).
