City Council to vote on plan for Carrollton & Claiborne lot
A Carrollton resident asked me to promote the following City Council meeting:
We are asking for residents, concerned citizens and media to join us in our fight for good redevelopment.
Meeting in City Council Chambers June 28, 7 p.m..
Please forward to friends, especially the following neighborhoods: Carrollton/ Claiborne//Broadway/Upper St. Charles/Fontainebleau/Mid City.
This is a major issue in how the old Town of Carrollton shall be redeveloped and ultimately, the entire Carrollton Corridor all the way to City Park. The value of our property hinges on retaining the authentic New Orleans architecture facing major thoroughfares. The possibilities are: beastly or beauty.
*Note the only issue before the council shall be either to grant a variance to Walgreen or not to do so. There is no vote by the council concerning a Grocery Store. Granting the variance will allow for a suburban designed store with parking facing Carrollton, and the store placed in the rear behind the parking. Carrollton Ave has a design standard which requires the Urban concept of placing the store near Carrollton with the parking behind the store. Upholding this Ordinance is consistent with historic neighborhoods surround by residential property.
The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 28th at 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers. We will be emailing over 8,000 District A residents, notifying them of the meeting and attaching a flyer. We encourage forwarding the flyer to those who may be interested.
