So, based on some posters I have seen around the Bywater neighborhood, and a post on the Reinventing the Crescent Facebook page, I hear that Phase 1 of this project might be in danger. One rumor is that the funding approved by the former mayor’s office is about to expire and needs the approval of the new mayor’s office. I also hear some buzz about a conspiracy to move the project Uptown (which, I guess, would mean implementing another phase of the master plan before Phase 1–which redevelops for public use most of the Riverfront between the French Quarter and the Industrial Canal.)
I need more information, so I will be attending a rally being held TOMORROW morning at 10 am at the corner of Mazant and Chartres. Let’s show the powers that be that we want the Riverfront plan to go forward!
