All Things Local- Freret

“All Things Local” on WGSO 990am – Saturday, September 15, 2012

Today, Kevin Fitzwilliam starts by talking to Alena Anderson, UNO graduate student in urban planning about street corridor revitalization, the idea of re-investing in the historic neighborhoods of the city, and how walking distance compares in her native California to New Orleans. Also, what works in improving these streets?

Kellie Grengs, board member of the New Freret joins the show to discuss what worked in re-building Freret Street. Steve Ehlinger of Latter and Blum also joins the show to talk about the spill over effect into surrounding neighborhoods of Freret. It’s all that and more on this edition of All Things Local.
