  • I would like to introduce our newest initiative called connect
  • What connect Coalition architecture
  • Illustrate with CPEX and NARS logos or a map of the corridor of parishes. We thought it important to find out where people are
  • Transition slide – poll findings that we are presenting are grouped in 3 areas: Community, Housing, and transporation First Community: Illustration: something that depicts neighborhood Not everyone in uS like their neighborhoods
  • Illustration: something that depicts neighborhood
  • Illustration: something that depicts neighborhood But these are the concerns – even new neighborhoods have these concerns LA people want to preserve our beauty and heritage - environment
  • Illustration: something that depicts neighborhood Old fashioned way of getting around We think it is important – are we building for this desire? Sidewalks are not currently installed in all neighborhoods
  • Housing; Illustration: something that depicts neighborhood Top reasons – when we plan our nbhs, we need to consider safety and crime, convenience We hear a lot about schools, but this is larger set of factors – all related Overplaying the schools aspect
  • This number is especially high in Baton Rouge, Ascension and Orleans—areas with higher commuter sheds and a lack of transit
  • Illustration: Traffic gridlock in Baton Rouge or New Orleans with recognizable signs Even though we have programs for roads- how we spend is not addressed, but still an interesting observation
  • Illustration: something that depicts neighborhood\\ What is preferred option – these are the choices people have today – widening roads Are we providing walking and biking trails Where there can be improved bus service – ongoing issue We wanted to know about passenger rail – ranks right up there with people’s solutions
  • Illustrate with photo of modern rail or some imagery like that. Have we overlooked this opportunity too long – are we ready for rail?
  • Illustrate with photo of modern rail or some imagery like that. This shows the interest in our urban areas , but value statement has not yet been made for rural parishes along corridor.
  • Illustration: something that depicts neighborhood Why people would support it? Evac route – unconventional reason, but showed strong support – powerful reason
  • Illustration: something that depicts neighborhood This is where our work is yet to be done 43% have heard some or a lot What are the message points – we need to get out there talking about it
  • Illustrate with photo of Malcolm Young or Louisiana Realtors’ logo Certainly realtors support – deal with econ dev every day
  • Illustrate with photo of Mitch Landrieu. Mitch notes there will be rail across us – are we positioning ourselves in lA Gives us a solid basis to move forward
