Should the French Quarter be pedestrian-only?

However, Glade Bilby, President of French Quarter Citizens says some locals living in the quarter disagree.I think what has happened is that we have become so over tourist that people sort of avoid the French Quarter and that is a mistake. If you didnt have residents here keeping up with the buildings, the sidewalks, giving a sense of community, you really wouldnt have the French Quarter that the city has marketed for decades to allow tourist to come here.Many businesses in the French Quarter are hurting right now because of COVID-19 restrictions.One option being explored by city leaders is to turn the French Quarter into a pedestrian-only zone, banning vehicle traffic, and having outdoor seating for restaurants in the French Quarter.Brittany Mulla McGovern, Executive Director of the French Quarter Business Association says, that may be what saves businesses in the French Quarter.That is why we are very excited to explore possible pedestrian-zones in the French Quarter to expand the foot-print temporarily or may be on a more permanent basis under one business model, said McGovern.McGovern also says at least one established French Quarter business on Rampart Street has closed and will not be returning to business. She says the Association wont know how bad the business situation in the quarter is, until sometime in September. Tags: French Quarter Pedestrian only Newsletter Comments

There is a risk of storm surge heavy rainfall, and wind impacts beginning over the weekend along portions of the U.S. Gulf Coast from Texas to the Florida Panhandle.Louisiana is in the middle of that potential landfall zone.While it is too soon to determine the exact location, timing, and magnitude of these impacts, interests in these areas should monitor the progress of Cristobal and ensure they have their hurricane plan in place.Because of wind shear in the Gulf, the system is expected to have trouble getting stronger as it heads for the Gulf Coast. It is also expected to have impacts that may be far from the center of circulation.Indeed, the models suggest that when the storm reaches the northern Gulf coast the worst conditions may occur at a large distance from the center, according to the Hurricane Center.That means we still dont know exactly where the largest impacts will be felt Sunday and Monday.The current forecast calls for top winds around 60 miles per hour at landfall.
