The Front Yard Initiative (FYI) hits the Airwaves
The Front Yard Initiative is picking up steam! We were recently featured in stories on WWL and on local NPR affiliate 89.9 WWNO discussing our pilot project on Valmont Street and the stormwater management, aesthetic and public access issues related to excessive paving and converting front yards into parking lots.
Check out our interview with UNO’s Professor John Renne here, coverage on March 16 on WWL TV here and on WWL 870AM here. You can also read about us in a story by Susan Langenhennig in the March 31 Times-Picayune.
