COUNCILMEMBER-AT-LARGE STACY HEAD, "PRESERVING OUR LEGACY"
Stacy Head was elected as Councilmember-At-Large in April 2012 and re-elected in February 2014. Previously, she was elected as the District "B" Councilmember in May 2006 and re-elected in February 2010. During her six-year tenure as District "B" Councilmember, blight reduction, affordable housing, commercial and neighborhood revitalization, public safety, and government reform and transparency were among her top priorities. As an At-Large member, she continues to pursue these important quality of life issues and good government initiatives on a citywide scale.
MINT JULEP RECEPTION
After the Annual Meeting, PRC members are invited to enjoy complimentary mint juleps in the gallery of the Leeds Building. It was built in 1853 to showcase the Leeds Iron Foundry's ironworks, including the building's elaborate Gothic Revival windows. It had stood vacant and deteriorating for more than a dozen years when PRC purchased it in March of 1998 to undertake a complete renovation. PRC moved into the building in 2000. The Leeds building is on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated as a local landmark by the Historic District Landmarks Commission.
*PRC memberships start at $35 per year. To join, contact the Membership Coordinator at 504.636.3057 or email@example.com.
Do you agree that each demolition contributes to the city's "death by a thousand cuts"?
