audio Broadmoor Lives! The Broadmoor Rebuilding Plan
New Orleans residents looking for good news post-Katrina might look to the plan just released to rebuild the Broadmoor Neighborhood. Among 73 neighborhoods, only Lakeview and Gentilly have plans. Now, with the release of the Broadmoor Improvement Association rebuilding plan, there's one cause for celebration. The Broadmoor plan is the first true grass-roots plan -- comprehensive in its detail, democratic in its structure, and utilizing a cutting edge mapping and records management system to detail what every Broadmoor resident plans to do with their homes.
