On the evening of Monday, May 16th, NOPD has reported that a trail user was stopped on the Greenway and robbed at gunpoint. Our thoughts are with the victim of this terrible crime. The welfare of everyone using the Lafitte Greenway is the number one priority of our organization. Looking ahead, Friends of Lafitte Greenway encourages widespread public use of the Greenway as one of the best ways to help reduce isolated acts of crime. In addition, Friends of Lafitte Greenway renews its commitment to work with local officials to find ways to increase bike security patrols; improve safe and accessible connections between neighborhoods and the Greenway; and explore other investments that can contribute to improving the safety and user experience of our city's newest public park space.
