      The latest news on the Unified New Orleans Plan and your participation.
      New Project Updates:

      The Unified New Orleans Planning process is moving forward quickly. With the
      recent inauguration of the Community Support Organization advisory
      committee, the organizational structure for the planning process is now
      complete. CSO meetings have now been scheduled for the following dates:

      Upcoming Community Meetings:

      October 12 & 26

      November 9 & 30

      December 7 & 21

      January 11 & 25

      CSO meetings will be held on Thursday evenings at City Council chambers from
      5:30 - 7:30 pm on these dates.

      On September 6th, 2006, the Citywide Planning Team held an orientation that
      included more then 30 team professionals in fields like land use planning,
      engineering, hazard mitigation, transportation, housing and economic

      On September 23, 2006, the Lambert Advisory team presented the results of
      their planning work at the City Council chambers. It is important to note
      that all of the recovery and rebuilding planning work completed to date
      through the Bring New Orleans Back Commission, the Lambert Advisory or
      through independent neighborhood planning processes will be incorporated
      into the final Unified New Orleans Plan.

      On Wednesday Sept 27, 2006, an orientation was held for the District and
      Neighborhood Planning Teams with more then 75 national and local planning,
      architectural, engineering and other professionals in attendance. The
      orientation meeting also included technical presentations by representatives
      from FEMA, the Louisiana Recovery Authority, the Road Home program, Recovery
      School District and New Orleans Public Schools.

      The first District planning meetings will be held on Saturday, October 14,
      2006 at the New Orleans Arena. The district meetings will be divided between
      morning and afternoon sessions. The goal of the meetings will be to work
      with groups of local and displaced stakeholders from each of the planning
      districts where planning has already occured to confirm completed work as
      well as the direction of additional work. Districts will also establish
      future needs and goals in areas where planning work is just getting started.

      Although the primary focus of the Unified New Orleans Plan is at the
      citywide and district planning levels, neighborhood "chapters" will also be
      included in the final report. Each District Planning Team will determine how
      information is gathered for all district planning along with detailed
      support from the neighborhood planning teams.

      The entire UNOP team looks forward to sharing additional information soon,
      and please continue to check our website at www.unifiedneworleansplan.org
      for more news.

      Ask An Expert
      We have found ourselves in an unprecedented situation. Never before have so
      many talented planners and experts been involved in one comprehensive team.
      We will build and launch soon a means to post all questions and concerns
      through the site and get expert advice from our various planners. An archive
      will grow from here for future use.

      “All development is not created equal. Communities that set low standards
      or no standards will compete to the bottom. If you are afraid to say no to
      anything you will get the worst of everything. On the other hand communities
      that set high standards will compete to the top.”
