Could New Orleans East provide the solution?
Mayor LaToya Cantrell is looking for a new location for City Hall, due to the current condition of the existing building. Municipal Auditorium seems to be the top choice, but
several months ago, during one of the many conversations about jump starting development in New Orleans East, a resident suggested to me that it would make sense for City Hall move to New Orleans East.
For some, that might be a laugh out loud suggestion. But there is available space to build, right on the Interstate, which is more convenient than dealing with the challenges associated navigating downtown traffic, a New Orleans East location could provide more convenient parking than the current location, and it could breathe life into an area that could certainly use it.
Is this a crazy idea, or one that makes sense? Stay tuned for more information on how this could work, and how it could benefit the city and the East.
