in New Orleans.
Angela

I would love to have a IKEA in the city of New Orleans . I moved from Atlanta back to hometown new Orleans this year. Ive shop at IKEA some many time s and I love the store . There so many pl moving to new Orleans plus the taxes is is so ridiculously high and ppl want to have great experiences shopping for there new apartment r home. and they don't want the crazy prices tags for luxury . I love nice things at reasonable price that I can afford on a glam chic fashionista Budget so if you find it in your heart to bring a IKEA to New Orleans I'll be so happy and grateful and I think everyone else will too thank you Angela W .

Agreed. I am a loyal IKEA shopper and furnished three previous homes with IKEA furniture and house wares when I lived in Houston, London, and Dublin. Now that I am in NOLA I miss IKEA sorely. High quality, good design and reasonable prices. Nothing in NOLA comes near it.

The Near Miss Project: Quantifying Cyclist Comfort and Safety
Monday, June 19, 2017, 12:00pm - 1pm CT
Webinar

Fear of being hit and seriously injured by a car is a major deterrent for people considering whether to bike on city streets. At the same time, city transportation departments use historical crash data to prioritize street design projects where people have been killed and seriously injured. But new research shows that for cyclists, near misses, close calls, and aggressive behavior from other road users can also have a significant effect on people’s biking behaviors or even their decision to ride at all. How can data about these cycling near-misses better inform city transportation policy and street design?

Join NACTO for a conversation with Dr. Rachel Aldred, founder of the UK’s Near Miss Project, to learn how her research has been used to create cycling policy and design improvements in the UK before injuries occur, and why high-quality design is crucial for increased ridership. Dr. Aldred will touch on various approaches to near miss data collection, and how they can help cities provide a more comfortable biking experience, improve biking rates, and make streets safer for everyone.

I doubt very much that I am the only person in this city that is embarrassed by how truly behind New Orleans is regarding the ability to order groceries online and have them delivered. I suppose the Walmart pick up thing is somewhat of a start but I doubt I'd actually use Walmart for groceries but at least they have lists, which is more than I can say for any of these other services. Instacart, Peapod, Shipt, heck, aliens from space, please come here to New Orleans and give us an efficient online grocery shopping and delivery service! :)

Hi folks!

This Neighborland post (ahead of it's time as it was) was the inspiration behind Crescent Cart - our local Grocery Delivery Service available to residents of the greater New Orleans Area (and beyond).

Please check us out: www.crescentcart.com/

Your feedback & criticism are welcome (and encouraged) - We're new, (but growing!) and would LOVE to hear what you think! Without customers - there is no Crescent Cart; We NEVER forget this - ya'll are #1.

Since day 1 we've strived to offer you: the most competitive pricing / fastest delivery options available / absolute easiest ordering process / and a number of other features that no other online grocery delivery services offer here in NOLA.

We are JUST getting started and have exciting plans to expand set for this year (soon you'll be able to shop for products just like you would from the industry leading grocery & homegoods delivery apps like Instacart and Google Express)!

P.s. Why not give us a try? Your first delivery is FREE!

My bad. I couldn't find it. Hopefully we can chat and figure that out. This is something I've been hoping to solve for the five years I've lived here.

It was phenomenal chatting with you Christian! Thank you so much for that opportunity! It's remarkable how much you understand about user experience design!! As you know, we are launching the third iteration of our business very soon- which will include all of the features that you want and more!!

You think very differently from most folks- and you won't accept 2nd rate. You're certainly a changemaker in the city of New Orleans!

Mayor Mitch Landrieu

The City of New Orleans' Department of Public Works and Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans are working together like never before to implement the most robust infrastructure improvement program that our region has seen in a generation, the $2.4B Capital Improvement Program.

With more than 200 projects, there will be a record amount of street work across the city, and once complete, every neighborhood will feel the positive impact. And this program will create thousands of construction jobs and opportunities for our small and disadvantaged businesses.

Aside from the many benefits, we understand that this construction will have impacts on our local residents and businesses. To that end, we are working very hard to ensure that there are plenty of resources available to learn about the individual projects so that you can prepare before construction begins.

Fixing our streets is a priority so that New Orleans can continue to grow economically and become more and more resilient.

We thank you for being our Capital Improvement Program partners.

Mitchell J. Landrieu,
Mayor City of New Orleans
