audio Citizens demand better communication in the citywide planning process
At a planning oversight meeting this past Thursday, New Orleans residents and community representatives repeatedly expressed frustration with the failure of the city’s recovery planning management team to perform effective marketing to people still displaced outside of New Orleans, or living in communities where traditional social networks have been destroyed.

The Unified New Orleans Plan is the latest in a series of neighborhood and citywide planning efforts which have tried to place New Orleans on a path to rebuild essential public services and infrastructure. The process is being monitored and advised by the Community Support Organization, a group of various planning stakeholders and citizen representatives.
