Heart of the East to Bayou Sauvage

In between residential neighborhoods arrayed along the Chef Menteur Ridge and the lakefront is the Heart of The East, an area rich with civic assets and commercial real estate. The Citrus Redevelopment Zone and Eastern Water Walk can anchor commercial redevelopment in this area. Integrated lakes and wetlands can strengthen the basin’s canal network, which provides connections from the Heart out to the wetland habitats of Bayou Sauvage.
