  1. Partisan politics I think are some of the largest culprits of this condition. FOUR of my closest friends have relocated to the Denver/Boulder area because of this. You hit the nail on the head with NOLA. What's even more telling are the amount of friends I have come from out of state and they rave about the city yet there's no way they could get a job in their field that pays more than $12/hr. Are we in a oil or not state? Meaning is this the time in which we need to disband from our connection to oil production and giving that industry massive tax breaks in order to invest in the infrastructure and citizens? I fear that we cannot have a happy medium of removing these tax breaks as well as retaining majority of the industry as well as growing it through infrastructure investment. This region is literally choking itself into irrelevancy.
  2. I don't want to get into politics but I think we would all benefit from a direct democracy and rid this republic system. Do you think it's worse than the oil bust? I think what's worse is that New Orleans still is the economic driver despite any corporate growth. However there are still large scale projects happening in New Orleans.
  3. LSU, Downtown, South Baton Rouge.
  4. This is what I was thinking although it seems like being on the new Medical Center Blvd (is that the name? whatever) would have been more impactful as a major player in the new medical center, especially considering that 99% of the population doesn't know what's going on until they put a sign in front of the construction site and having a tall building in a CBD style setting says alot about being impactful in the region. I could see Ochsner being one of those companies that could be a major sponsor for something like a minor-league baseball team.
  5. I don't think we've ever agreed this much. Politicians do what their constituents allow them to do.
  6. I agree that it's a bad spot, the only plus I could see is if they install a stop light at the entrance light they did for the Coca-Cola plant on Plank Rd. I much prefer the shopping center on Airline and Hollywood St. I'm not exactly sure how it would fit but there seems to be enough room and also the possibility of bringing better quality retail to that center. You could have a defacto mix-use development there.
  7. This is sad news and certainly paints a bad picture for Baton Rouge. From the FBI raid of Bel Edwards' brother's office, to this, it spells the reason why Louisiana stays behind of the pack when we could capitalize on what the state offers. I have never been in support for Mayor Broom ever since a friend of mine who met her during the campaign and this is the nail in the coffin. I wasn't a fan of Holden but his administration was not this blatantly corrupt. St. George is a mixed bag, I've been in support and in opposition of the new city. I don't have faith that St. George wouldn't follow a similar path of other corrupt local families and good ol boys. But I do think that the higher political involvement would demand more accountability than the City-Parish as a whole. I love Baton Rouge and really would rather not have to tell my grandchildren about how Baton Rouge and Louisiana as a whole had immense potential and let it squander away for personal gain in the hands of a few. The population needs to be more politically involved, despite the party affiliation, and demand far more transparency and accountability. Living in New Orleans now, Mayor Landrieu and his administration is becoming an embarrassment. I used to be really fond of him until late. It's late and I'm rambling but I believe we have a small window to act or be left in the second wave of high growth in cities like Charleston, Fayetteville, Raleigh-Durham, etc.
  8. Very odd location, this would have been a golden opportunity to bring some vertical relief to the health district.
  9. I want to address your​ post further but no time. Just wanted to post this. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  10. I really wanted a green median instead of the third turn lane. I agree on the street parking. I had to do the same as Richy and look on Google. It's a pretty nice area, something we could easily shoot for. I wonder where a stretch of restaurants and nightlife would spring up. I'd say from Calandro's over to Acadian or BR High.
  11. Throwing out those conspiracies are we..
  12. State officials in more than one office should be drawn and quartered. This wouldn't happen in Texas. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  13. I wonder what that dock is in front of the building? It's never been there all the times I've been on that dock. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  14. 200,000+ cars that would have to look at it for at least 30 mins at a time too!
  15. A green space and a dedicated skatepark under the bridge (there's already a makeshift one there) would be awesome.
