Kenner Has High Hopes For Rivertown

Kenner's efforts to turn its Rivertown district into a focal point for development are getting a boost after the area received an official Main Street designation from the state.

The New Orleans Advocate reports the designation formally places Rivertown among several dozen areas in Louisiana that are part of the national Main Street program, aimed at promoting and reinvigorating urban corridors.

Kenner Seeks to Revive Historic Rivertown Area

KENNER, La. (AP) — The city of Kenner is launching efforts to revive its historic Rivertown area.

A farmer's market and outdoor movie nights will start next month as part of the effort to lure more people to the area. And a new company is taking over the area's performing arts theaters.

Mayor Mike Yenni's vision for the historic area is for a vibrant area that doesn't require a government subsidy, according to The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/I9diix ).
