How many of those crimes are against people within the neighborhood and how many are random?

Yes, here: http://www.wafb.com/story/24841591/melrose-east-ranks-no-25-on-list-of-most-dangerous-neighborhoods-in-us

 

The only reason why there are that many cops is due to an office they have in the facility, which will be moving to the old Women's Hospital. I'm not afraid of the area during normal business hours but at night it can be a bit sketcy, especially if you are not on the side that fronts Florida. Our employees have had minor incidents in the parking lot. It's a matter of time and someone will have something serious happen. I do feel if you cut this Bon Carre park and make it its own neighborhood that it would not fall on the worst 25 UW list but I don't think it would rank very high either due to Mall City being in the back yard of Bon Carre.

 

This business complex is highly successful and something that should be modeled. I highly doubt I would have ever eaten at Tai Kitchen or the various places on Florida and Government if it weren't for working here.The whole area would be much worse off if this were a blighted old abandoned shopping mall.

 

Depending on peoples point of view, especially politically, how things are phrased can determine people's perception on a statement. Politically speaking there has been a lot of rhetoric about the top 1%, mostly negative, the last few years. It's hard online to know what people mean so I think a few of us mistook wealthier as if it had a negative connotation to it. It sounds like your intent was to say in general the people commuting from Livingston through the area are typically of a better socioeconomic status than the residents that live around Cortana which I would tend to agree is an accurate assumption.

The only reason why it's so high is because of how incredibly small the area is that basically encompasses a project. I go Amedysis on Saturdays and it's always quiet, haven't been at night.

 

I guess I should have not used "wealthier", I mean it's not like I meant anything negative, I live in Ascension!

How many of those crimes are against people within the neighborhood and how many are random? 

Good question. I can imagine kids targeting Bon Carre employees though, it's so close.

The issues I've heard of were all pretty minor. For example, someone ran up to an employee saying a guy passed out and asked to use his cell phone. So the employee did and the person ran away with the phone.

No big deal Antrell. It was a simple misunderstanding.

Good for city of BR!

 

The more huge businesses that want to be annexed in BR, the less likely St George will survive!

 

Now if they can just get the Mall of LA, Perkins Rowe, and Laberge Casino annexed that would be tremendous!

I highly doubt St. George wouldn't survive. The bigger question is whether BR could survive without St. George. 

 

Maybe now that BR will have a Costco and a movie studio they will stop crying about how unfair it is for St. George residents to exercise their right to incorporate.

Oh please. The people of St George aren't concerned about businesses. This is about schools.

And with all this big businesses  wanting to be annexed it will be hard for St. George to survive. Even further it's harder to control a city when little pockets of it are not even in that city. I think the St. George schools will survive, with all the cuts coming to EBR I hoping we get a charter system. 

 

Whether St. George survives or not the legacy it will leave is important, it made people wake up and realize that many things need to be changed, if they are it will only result in positive things for the city: better schools = more people = more culture = more attraction = more business

Huh?

1) it's three businesses one of which is a credit union. Those aren't big businesses.

2) St George schools will survive? What does that mean. They aren't going anywhere. Either they will be under the control of EBR or St George.

3) How is annexing three businesses changing anything for the better? These are businesses who are wanting financial incentives for being annexed. That doesn't change anything except for those three businesses. This doesn't do anything to change into a positive.

It shows that more businesses want to be in the city, no matter what you think it's bad for St. George. Next I was saying that a St. George school system will happen, regardless of the vote.

It was only a matter of time before the Mall of La./Perkins Rowe would be annexed once St. George made their announcement....one has to wonder if the proposed St. George never come about...would BR have left these properties  unincorporated??

I wish it wouldn't take a threatening situation to get people to move on something important.

It's pretty sad but it showcases the societal issues we have in this state, throughout government and citizens. The laissez-faire attitude here can definitely be a huge hindrance in certain cases.

If Holden and the rest of BR was smart they would work to solve the issues the St George organizaters are fighting for. May be as part of being annexed into BR they can get a guarantee of a better school system. They could add benchmarks and if not met separate the school district. If everyone puts some skin in the game the residents in all areas will win.

EBR doesn't realize it but if the Mall of LA is annexed and st george dies off it will benefit ascension and Livingston parish. People will vote with their feet.
