BioDistrict to present at Mid-City Neighborhood Organization Monday

An important meeting is happening tomorrow evening at Grace Episcopal Church. 

If you have been following our blog posts, you are aware that we have major concerns with the proposed development of the area dedicated by legislative act in 2005 as Bio-district. 

Meeting details:

6:30 PM. - Monday, February 7, 2011.
Grace Episcopal Church at 3700 Canal Street. 
GNOBEDD will present their current progress on the BioDistrict Planning.  
The Planning Map will be on display to the public at 6pm.

At the MCNO meeting tomorrow, you will have a chance to see the current working map that Jim McNamara, President and CEO for the Greater New Orleans Biosciences Economic Development District, calls the "consolidated scheme" for the 1500 acre footprint bounded by Loyola ave, Tulane Ave., Carrollton Ave, and Iberville Street, and includes the Historical Medical District where Charity Hospital still sits - vacant. This scheme is supposedly an amalgamation of ideas suggested by residents living in the footprint after half a dozen or so meetings. 

Please consider attending tomorrow's meeting if you share our concerns, have concerns of your own or simply want to find out what all the fuss is about.

See you there!
