Plans for new city fire station on 28 West will soon be out for bids. City owns 50% of parking area between National Guard and Coliseum with the Parish.

James Greer is now officially Central La. Donald Trump. IN the past two weeks James has experienced some great ink in the Town Talk on his role as Pastor, developer for country club property, and partner with Richard Kyle on Cowboy Town. Should ask James to do the show when I am on the road but I might lose my spot for this Wednesday “fun time” All kidding aside open house at Cowboy Town was a great idea and except for grandson’s birthday party in New Orleans I would have been there. Listener question what was the name of former mascot for Cowboy Town. Town Talk article made James sound like Donald Trump when the reporter Jodi Belgard in writing about Village on the Green stated “it was valued at $1.65 million and Greer bough the subdivision for $700,000. James when on to praise development in Woodworth with new Caroline J. Dorman Junior High and brand-new Town Hall

(-1) New Home sales: to rank positive score need one sale last week market provided zero.
New home construction is improving but not nearly at 800,000 starts required to signal full recovery. Rents are higher, construction lending has improved, and looks like more homes will be built this year than at any point in past 3 ½ years. Seasonally adjusted annual rate of 747,000 permits as of March with 462,000 of those single family homes.
(-1) Lender sales as percent of total sales: rates positive score if lender sales are below 5% of total sales, this week market gave 7 sales with volume of $322,330 / $3,142,388 = 10.25% for weekly negative score. Volume of foreclosed sales as percent of total sales is beginning to cause me some concern.
