The newly formed Tulane-Canal Neighborhood Association, which oversees a pocket of land bordering Mid-City, Treme and parts of the Lafitte Greenway, took one step closer last week to becoming more of an organized entity and less of a brainstorm amongst those hoping to better the neighborhood.................The Lafitte Greenway has also added to the neighborhood’s growth, Cantrell added.

To that end, she asked that neighborhood association organizers be “mindful” of those changes. She said a large part of the organization’s job would be hearing the voices of those who had long lived in the area, before new developments were built, and may be sensitive about the changes, or even feel pushed out of the neighborhood because of them.
