  1. Cajun, I live in the Webb Park Neighborhood area. The streets are are very narrow (2 lanes) and the traffic spill onto College would be an absolute nightmare. Not to mention the majority of residents here (I'm not including myself) are very white, very rich, very privileged. They would fight a zoo tooth and nail. The best option I think would be your proposal. It would go great there.
  2. I know there are existing plans to turn the Rural Life Museum into a true botanical garden and park area. A smartly designed zoo could do wonders and maybe fulfill that mission. Webb Park would never happen. Too many residential neighborhoods around it. Not to mention it would be a traffic nightmare. The horse farm area would be brilliant if designed right and turned into a larger park.
  3. If you can get out, get out. This place is in really such bad shape...and I don't think Broome is going to do much to improve things.
  4. Yes it does.
  5. I completely agree.
  6. With the new Water Campus and Entergy site redevelopment on the horizon I think this are will become a lot more stable population wise and far more established. It will develop a true sense of place and being. Sacred Heart will also benefit greatly from it. Younger middle-class/upper-class families will mean some parish growth and improvement. Overall this area is looking up and up. Great news.
  7. It going in at Cortana could actually raise some economic development interest for the area.
  8. Wait...hold up...did we just get a new tower? 18 story's? That's great!
  9. I think this is the best possible replacement and with improved access it has the potential to be very popular, especially with residents that live closer.
  10. Damnit. I totally would have tried to go had I known ahead of time. I hope they do one soon. Richy, how do you get these notifications from the DDD?
  11. Alright, I pretty much agree with this. I made the suggested edits. Honestly, there is no reason and centrist/populist ambitious Republican could not win the Mayoralty. The problem is that too many old guard candidates that closely and strongly align with the beliefs of group D are in the race and end up garnering the most Republican support to make a run-off.
  12. Would love to see some high-rises in this area. Maybe a little something varried like what they have in Frankfurt. How cool would that be, driving towards a castle of skyscrapers on the interstate? Something varied like this:
  13. I think the problem is a lack of alternative. Not only are we divided along traditional American lines of race and liberalism/conservatism, but our leaders are simply incompetent. Me too. And if we could reach Atlanta's international level of importance I would be one happy man.
  14. The sonic downtown is open.
  15. In my opinion, a huge problem is that there is not a united political agenda even in the legislature. The LAGOP and the LADP are both treated like branches of the larger organizations and as such have no coherent policy on where to take the state. Maybe that's just my perspective, but I feel if our state political parties had genuine agenda's on how to solve our states problems we could maybe actually get stuff done. We need organization and we need to focus on the real issues, not the petty social issues that some Republicans use just to get out the vote (Democrats do it too, but I really thinking about Jeff Landry and his targeted fights on gay rights). Taking away tax breaks and pledging to reinvest that money in our states infrastructure would not only just make sense, but I sense it would be very politically palpable to literally everyone. Reinvestment in infrastructure without raising the public's taxes? Why the hell HAVEN'T we done this.
