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.
Carrolton's Harrell Park Reopens with Super Bowl Turf
The smell of fresh cut AstroTurf filled the air today at Harrell Park’s opening, newly invigorated with a championship-caliber field straight from Super Bowl XLVII. The City, NORD, the Bensons, the NFL, Chevron, and a host of other private and nonprofit partnerships came together to restore Carrolton's recreation facility, where Mayor Mitch was proud to say he used to toss the pigskin (or try) as a kid.

Stacy Head Issues Stripped-Down Food Truck Ordinance After Veto
City Councilwoman Stacy Head put down the ketchup and backed away from a potential food fight with Mayor Mitch today. On Wednesday, Landrieu vetoed the ordinance Head drafted to launch a program of changes to the laws governing food trucks, raising the spectre of a potential vote to override da Mayor by the City Council. But Head decided instead to put more food truck legislation forward. The latest draft contains only an increase in the number of permits available for mobile vendors, leaving aside other reforms.

City's One Stop Shop Features Digital Upgrades, App
Since the beginning of Mayor Mitch's term, he's talked about streamlining City Hall. Today, da Mayor cut the ribbon on a new segment of the Perdido palace that's designed to cut away the red tape for everyone. The City's One Stop Shop is designed to make permitting less of a hassle by locating the City Planning Commission, the Safety and Permits department, the Vieux Carre Commission and the Historic District Landmarks Commission all in one seventh floor spot. But, as ever in New Orleans, the new City Hall experience is about more than physical location.
