Save the Strip, Fondren!
Statement of Support for the
Preservation of the Fondren Strip
We are citizens, both inside and outside the Fondren community who are aware of the proposed development known as “Whitney Place.”
We recognize that the issues surrounding this development may be sensitive, and of that we take note.
We cannot, however, remain silent on the possibility of demolishing the circa-1938 businesses which have come to be known as the “Fondren Strip.” We believe these particular buildings and the long-standing businesses that occupy them not only reflect the history of the community but are still an integral part of neighborhood life and must be preserved.
Therefore, in the tradition of community unity and action, we join each with the other in stating that:
1. We, under no circumstances, want the Fondren Strip demolished.
2. If development is to occur in that area, we want the current buildings, in their natural state, incorporated into the plans.
3. If development is to occur, we believe the scale of the proposed development is too large for that area. We do not want such a density level there, and feel it would overwhelm our community and ruin the unique and livable village of Fondren.
