*The Urban Conservancy Biweekly Update*
January 1, 2002
In this issue:
This week's update will be another bite-sized holiday version,
but the web site will continue to be updated with news, updates
and letters from readers. You can see the latest at:
The last year has been a wild ride. The Urban Conservancy would
like to thank you for reading and taking action in 2002 and look
forward to being a part of your 2003.
We are also looking forward to a number of exciting projects in 2003
*New media - not everyone has access to e-mail and the web, so we'll be
adding more ways to get the word out. And no, the web site won't suffer
either. We'll keep adding more visuals and developing new ways of sharing
*More information - we're increasing our research capacity so that we
can cover more issues with more timely and accurate information.
*Public events - we'll be presenting at conferences and forums around
the city and the Gulf South. We want to hear more from you both on-line
and in public, so we'll be adding new features to help you stay involved.
*More good ideas. We are preparing to announce a new program that helps
YOU support your local businesses!
We look to your continued support and hope you will consider becoming a
member of the Urban Conservancy by visiting
and by passing along the weekly updates to others who are interested in
quality of life and democracy in their community.
We'll be back next week with a po-boy sized update.

few are living, and countless members are still unborn.
