Next meeting Tuesday the 12th, good past meetings with Brady Blade and Don Shea

next ABetterShreveport meeting is this Tuesday, the 12th, at 8:20 a.m.

We'll be set to pick up where we left off in discussing:

* the cultural district
* a cooperative center for food, bikes, and restoration
* Texas Street development
* signs and labeling of bike routes
* pedestrian-bicycling building standards legislation

Feico Kempff, Maurice Loridans, and myself had a great meeting last week--if a bit smaller than usual--with Brady Blade, the assistant director of economic development for Mayor Glover.

This past Monday Feico and I met with Don Shea, Director of the Downtown Development Authority to talk about Texas Street and the cultural district.

We'll report on that meeting on Tuesday as well. In a nutshell, though, both Brady and Don were very encouraging, and Brady is even headed to the International Council of Shopping Centers convention next week partly to work towards the ends we've discussed.

As usual, we'll meet at Centenary Square, across the street the George's Grill, room 206. Enter from the parking lot in back and you can't miss us.

The coffee will be fresh!
