RGGC Successfully Completes Lyons Center Renovations

Mayor Mitch Landrieu and a cadre of officials, supporters and neighborhood residents  lauded the $4.9 million renovation as a symbol of the success of a program that partners private investors with city government, as well as of the continued revitalization of the city after Katrina.

The center’s programs will cater to more than 200 kids at any given time throughout the year, NORD CEO Vic Richard said.

The Lyons Center will also serve as a headquarters of sorts for the New Orleans Ballet Association, which had a class practicing Monday during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
