Council Pedals New Bike Taxi Regs
Pedicabs have grown into a common sight around the French Quarter and CBD since they were first granted room to roam in 2011. However, the City legislation that set them up was a pilot program, which must be revisited by the City Council's Transportation Committee. On Tuesday, the Council considered adding more 200lb trikes to the pack, as well as other trickshaw regulations.
Big Easy Gets Bronze Award for Bike Friendliness
Miles of newly painted bike lanes have New Orleanians leaving their cars at home in favor of two-wheeled vehicles. Trading the truck for the Trek has not gone unnoticed, but the Big Easy is still far down the path to first-class cycling status. This afternoon, District C City Councilmember Kristin Gisleson Palmer and the Regional Planning Committee accepted the Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community award.
SoLa Pols Take Flood (Map) Fight to Washington
Levees are expected to hold the Mighty Mississippi at bay this spring, but South Louisiana still has a flood fight on her hands. Instead of mother nature, it's - as ever- the federal government that's causing a need to rally the troops and fly-ins. A group of about 20 local leaders are in Washington, D.C., today to press Congress about the 2012 changes to FEMA flood maps that will exponentially increase flood insurance for some citizens. Along with the numbers, the delegation got a little muscle in the Capitol from U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu.
Raze on the River
Tourism Officials Propose to Knock Down WTC, Ferry Landing with Riverfront Plan
New Orleans tourism gurus are looking to fill the space where the empty World Trade Center now sits with people by 2018. Whether the hulking building will still be there is another question.
Still Fly: MSY to Build New Terminal
Non suburban New Orleanians are about to get some extra incentive to make the trek to Kenner. The Louis Armstrong International Airport is set to build a brand new North Side terminal. According to Mayor Mitch, the $826 million investment will generate 13,000 jobs and will draw new flights and businesses to MSY.
Cabbies Celebrate New Certificates with Mayor, Palmer
There were no crabby cabbies in the Mayor's office today, as drivers made a pit stop at City Hall this afternoon to celebrate their new Certificates of Public Necessity and Convenience (CPNC). Out of 594 applicants, the City chose 100 cab drivers to award CPNCs, which allow drivers to operate in the City. While a few recipients are just beginning their careers, some, like veteran driver Sam Porter, have been waiting for a CPNC since 1966.
City Breaks Ground on St. Claude Stallings Center
By this time next year, Bywater residents won’t have to go to the Country Club to take a dip (unless they prefer to swim in the buff). Mayor Mitch and friends broke ground on The Stallings St. Claude Center (4300 St. Claude) this afternoon, a project to reinvigorate the space that was destroyed in The Storm.
City Officials Gear Up for Bike to Work Day
In this city’s spirit of turning everything into a party, Tuesday April 9th will be your time to join in on a commuter celebration of two-wheeled transportation. Hosting the 2nd annual NOLA Bike to Work Day; Entergy, Bike Easy, Health Commissioner Dr. Karen DeSalvo, and the New Orleans City Council invite you to ditch the four-wheeled gas guzzlers for a collective team effort to go green and get in shape while biking into the office.
Fest Motion, Prompted by BUKU Noise, Passes City Council
The City Council passed the first in a series of promised motions that sprang up in the wake of BUKU noise complaints. The New Orleans City Council's discussion surrounding the BUKU Music + Art Festival, held on several stages of Mardi Gras World on March 8-9, lead to new legislation that requires greater cooperation among city offices, and is designed to limit future disturbances.
BUKU Noise Prompts City Council Call for Fest Awareness
For at least two of New Orleans' City Councilmembers, the post-Buku fest noise about traveling sound on the Misssissppi River didn't fade when the bass stopped. At tomorrow's regular City Council meeting, District B rep LaToya Cantrell and District C rep Kristin Gisleson Palmer plan to make a motion to call for greater partnership among city departments in planning for acts near the Mississippi.
