You can't get angry at every proposal. It's best to assume they will never come to fruition. River Park in Baton Rouge will probably never amount to anything, but I'm not angry about it.

I'm not familiar with the East, was Lincoln Beach in a good area? Would it even be feasible to invest in it?

There's a lot more rebuilding to do in the East before Lincoln Beach would be a realistic expectation for the area

Prime real estate on the lake...it couldve been feasible if done right and marketed properly. I'm not particularly mad about every proposal, it'd just be nice to say my city followed through on something they planned..that's why I'm happy to see the medical complex up and getting built....people are working and feeding their fams....that's what I like to see

@ chilly you're right. There was a story on fox 8 last night about fixing up the area around the grand theater in the east and trying to get a mall there....lets see how this goes

That's exactly what I thought.

Prime? I don't think much land there is considered prime.
New Orleans has probably followed through on more projects and small developments than any other city this decade. You shouldn't be angry at anything, New Orleans is making serious leaps and bounds.

People love to live and play around the water, so it is a prime area for redevelopment

Where cars rule, Jefferson Parish unveils a plan to encourage bicyclists | NOLA.com

The wide shopping boulevards lined with parking lots and restaurant drive-throughs. The broad drainage canals that discourage pedestrians crossing. The 10-lane superhighway that roars through it all.
These are evidence that Jefferson Parish, a textbook suburb where cars are king and free parking is a shopper's birthright, grew up in the age of the automobile.
That age might be dying, however. If it does, its death certificate might well be the Jefferson Parish Master Bicycle Plan, a 92-page roadmap of ways to transform Metairie, Marrero and points in between into a haven of dedicated bike lanes and greenways, a place where motorists learn to steer clear of cyclists and the newest residents will be born within reach of a helmet.
