Planning in Today's New Orleans
June 12, 2007
The post-Katrina planning process in New Orleans has been slow and complex. It has included several phases: the Bring New Orleans Back plan, the City Council (Lambert Advisory) planning process, the Unified New Orleans Plan, and implementation of these plans through the city's Office of Recovery Management. It has also been affected by plans and policies of the Louisiana Recovery Authority, such as the "Road Home" program, which pays homeowners to rebuild or relocate.
In this program, Rob Olshansky summarized all of these processes to date, discussed some of the major challenges, and speculated on what to expect in the coming months.
