The Lens retracts opinion piece regarding St. Claude Ave. parkettes

Print More

The Lens is retracting and apologizing to Candy Chang for an opinion piece about “parkettes” on St. Claude Avenue that appeared in this space Thursday.

The article contended that ┬áChang, the co-founder of the design company Civic Center, is pushing an effort to build “parkettes” along St. Claude Avenue. This is not true. Civic Center is involved in a separate effort along St. Claude that was financed by the same grant that is supporting parkettes. In fact, the St. Claude Avenue Main Street organization is working to develop parkettes. Further, the piece implied that Chang or Civic Center is going to collect “a large portion” of the $275,000 grant. That is not true.

The Lens regrets the errors.
