In his capacity as Chair of the New Orleans City Planning Commission, managing partner, Robert Steeg, was recently quoted in articles by the New Orleans Times-Picayune/NOLA.com and The New Orleans Advocate, regarding the demolition of the Canal Street ferry terminal.
As noted in The Advocate:
“After nearly two hours of debate, New Orleans city planners on Tuesday took no action on a request by the Regional Transit Authority to demolish the aging ferry terminal at the foot of Canal Street.
“To approve the demolition of something without knowing what’s going to replace it in this circumstance is unwise,” said commission Chairman Robert Steeg, who noted community opposition at the meeting as a factor in his decision to oppose the request.”
