CSO meetings will be held on Thursday evenings at City Council chambers from

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
