Yenni plans town hall meeting on Kenner 2030 plan

Mayor Mike Yenni will hold a town hall meeting next week to seek community input on his Kenner 2030 plan.

According to The Advocate, the Kenner City Council approved Yenni's plan to refinance sales tax bonds for up to $47 million.  That money would help fund $30 million in aesthetic improvements within the city. The State Bond Commission must still approve the measure and is expected to consider it in a few weeks' time.

The town hall will be helped at 7:30 Wednesday evening, April 10 at the Kenner City Park Pavilion, 3800 Loyola Drive.  

"Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. to view proposed projects," reads a news release from the Mayor's Office. "All residents of Kenner are invited and encouraged to attend this informative session regarding Kenner's future."

The statement calls the meeting the mayor's "final push for public education and input prior to the council vote for refinancing of bonds on April 18th, a critical component to financing the proposed corridor redevelopment and infrastructure improvements in the plan."

The Yenni administration has posted details of the Kenner 2030 plan on the city's website at www.kenner.la.us
