  • Ormond, Suzanne Interviewee


Interview with Suzanne Levy Ormond of the Crescent Council of Civic Associations on her reaction to the Uptown Mississippi River Bridge Proposal. She states that their reaction to a bridge in Uptown New Orleans has not changed in the last 3 years. She says that the Council is against a bridge anywhere between Jackson Avenue and the Orleans Parish Line with Jefferson Parish. She feels that anything in the Uptown area will violate its integrity, and that the Council is as much against the Uptown Bridge Proposal as it was against the Riverfront Expressway in the Quarter.
