"That doesn't work well with the tourists"

Stacy Head wants the dirty people out of the tourists' way.

The French Market Corp. is waiting to receive numbers from the Audubon Institute to determine costs associated with managing the Moonwalk, but Smith said he doesn't expect it to have a significant impact on the corporation's budget.

Councilwoman Stacy Head urged Smith to take an aggressive approach to securing and cleaning the Moonwalk.

"That area has often become a place where people set up mini-camps and sort of live and that doesn't work well with the tourists, especially people with kids who are going to the aquarium," Head said.
Don't they know Bumfest is the economic engine that drives downtown tourism? As NEW ORLEANS WILL says, "MORE VISITORS = MORE VIBRANCY" Why are they trying to kill the vibrancy?
