#NOLA #HoZone Monday, 5/7/12 @ 7 PM: COMMUNITY MEETING re: Proposed Hospitality District

(SB 573)

Monday, May 7, 2012 7:00 p.m.
St. Mark's Church (1130 N. Rampart St.)

Please join us for a community meeting to learn more about Senate Bill 573, which would establish a "Hospitality and Entertainment" Taxing Zone to include the French Quarter, Marigny Triangle, Treme, parts of the Seventh Ward, the Warehouse District, Faubourg Lafayette and "adjacent areas." The bill, introduced 10 weeks ago and un-amended despite numerous suggested changes, has dangerous implications for the neighborhoods that lie within "the zone."

There has been no public hearing on this bill, so Monday's meeting will be the first (and maybe only) chance for citizens to weigh in publicly on this very important issue!

We are reaching out to all of the neighborhoods impacted by this bill, our City Council members, and state legislators. You need to be there!

~ Security and refreshments provided ~

P.S.: We apologize for the short notice - this issue has been moving quickly and unpredictably. Staying ahead of it has been challenging!
