    Whistle-Stop
  1. Gary 's motive behind that was because the Mayor declined to participate in the Rouge Collection Forum Same thing with Edwards.....He's a Veteran and on Veterans day he had to speak and be somewhere else which left him on a tight schedule so he had to decline the Rouge Collection event...and right after that a bad article went out about him from Gary...Talking about he's now endorsing Vitter....The articles are online...They are bad news.....and it hurt me because I actually was proud for him when he first started and he had legit reads for Baton Rouge .....now everything is abou
  2. I was explaining to Gary and Ms banks that they can't blame the Mayor for all problems in NBR.....KIP can't make a miracle happen over night....they said no to Alive downtown so what do you think they would say to it If he stated he wanted to put it in NBR with its current state....People have to want to invest .....And we as the community have to do our part and clean up and make investors feel welcome for them to invest....we can't just point fingers at the wrong people.....she was just stating I'm correct and that he still has a plan for ALIVE Thanks for the welcome back
  3. im not just talking about the park.......i see u down talk in other topics...it's just a known thing with you......i shouldnt have to put u on ignore.....like they say....dont get into a sports debate if you don't know the game..........same thing with urban development....before you make crazy comments atleast know what your talking about 1st
  4. the big deal is...you are always against everything!!!...you down talk and down play Baton Rouge so much it gets very aggravating....and the sad thing is..you have never been to some of the places you down talk, or even know the history and business standpoint of half of these projects to understand...the name of the site is "Urban Planet".....if you are not down with Baton Rouge doing something to make the city stand out with the other cities it's size....why are you even here?
  5. I don't have time to explain this any more......you should read a few books on development....Community Coffee shop turned the deal down when i was there because that store was a test store to see if it would work downtown.....I was speaking about what Live after 5 promoters do to all the businesses in the area.....Not Just the COFFEE SHOP....my 5th grade cousin understands what im saying....how are you missing it??? Lets take it SLOWWWWWW.....Local Concert promoters need help to fund the project.......Local Downtown Business need help bringing people downtown to spend money at their busi
  6. your understanding is horrible.......i said while i was managing the coffee shop "we" got offered a business deal.......Not only the coffee shop.....it's more Businesses than just a coffee shop.........why do u keep saying a coffee shop supporting it is not enough....i even sent a link with the many people supporting it.....so how do u keep only getting the coffee shop?
  7. you missed the whole point..what i was saying is ...they are reaching out to the businesses to get help with funds and in return they help market the businesses....so it's a win/win at drawing people downtown
  8. well...let me give you a little info that you might not know.....When we opened up cc's coffee shop right there on that same block the directors of live after 5 came to us with a business plan...if we sponsor the event they would advertise our business and it came with a few other perks i won't mention...but if you take a look at the website they have different sponsor packages http://liveafterfiveonline.com/sponsors.html and most of them are downtown businesses ...some small sponsors might not even be on the page....but what that does is creates extra marketing tools for local businesses and
  9. Thanx....i drop in everyyyyy so often ummmmm Yes it will....because people will start hanging out down there...and trust me when there is a crowd....you can bet there is a business owner following.....If you don't give people a reason to come downtown...people won't come....if you give them a reason to come...more businesses are ready to invest and cash in.
  10. People complain and complain alllllllllll day about how we don't need to spend the money building this and that......Just sit back and Chill .......Soooooo Many people were pissed about the whole Town Square thing....but look....it's a big thing for baton rouge....I took my family that lives out here in Houston that havent been to BR in years, down to town square and the 1st thing they said was WOW...downtown is really Live now......we cant keep taking old things and updating them..sometimes it's just better to build it new....we update it now.....but in 10 years we have to update it again....
  11. the zachary Holiday inn was built from the ground up right across the street from the best western and it looks real nice!
  12. Holden said the new projects being proposed don’t have funding, and Livingston and Ascension parish officials are wrong if they think state legislators will “let them have a field day” with available road funds. “They are in the pie-in-the sky mode,” Holden said of officials proposing alternatives. “We are in the reality mode.” That is a Very True Statement
  13. true enough.....thats why i stress ...right now we need everything we can get...Prices on everything are going up and i don't see it going down soon..so every development counts Bring on the hotels That opens this city up to host Major events even the hotels in Zachary and Baker got business Man i cant wait till downtown grows a little more
  14. And it's also going to Light up 3rd st. with the digital billboard or Neon Lighting
