Re: “Frayser to Have New Grocery-Anchored Shopping Center

Late response, but hand-in-hand with deannexation would be a return to a rural level of services such that deannexation would be cost-effective. Otherwise we would simply be passing the costs of a low-density area from the city to the county (and we Memphians of course double-pay taxes already.) My vision would be returning most everything outside the loop to a rural level of services, unless it's incorporated as a municipality.

Re: “Frayser to Have New Grocery-Anchored Shopping Center

Good news. But then I wonder in a city as over extended geographically as Memphis, perhaps we should deannex Frayer and attempt to consolidate folks in areas like North Memphis which are largely vacant. The higher we get the population density, the nicer the amenities we can support.

Re: “Council Recap: Beale Street Bucks, Railgarten Get New Ways Forward

If our scholars on the City Council had done some basic math, they would have seen that they raised the price of admission to Beale Street from $2 to $5. Difficult to see how that is more equitable (previously it was $10, minus $8 in vouchers, costing $2 for entrance).

Re: “Mayor: Memphis Situation Different from New Orleans on Confederate Statues

So the statue can't be "relocated, removed, altered, renamed, rededicated, or otherwise disturbed." It says nothing about building a large piece of art around it?
