On the River Front

Friends for Our Riverfront has put together a “who, what, where” look at the Beale Street Landing project, complete with maps and drawings to give citizens the entire picture. Here’s an excerpt about the estimated $29.3 million cost: “Of that, $18.8 million will be paid for by Memphians in the form of general obligation bonds, which are proposed to be issued in 2007, 2008, and 2009. The remainder, $10.5 million, will come from the federal and state governments, partially earmarked in legislation for ferry boats and docks.” Want to read more? Click here.
