City Council has until early July to act on these Master Plan Amendment, and this will likely be its last opportunity to do so.

The Neighborhood Engagement Office submitted Master Plan Text Amendment 19 to the Planning Commission. This amendment would weaken citizen participation in the Master Plan and remove any reference to District Councils. This amendment, proposed by one man, would undo some of the work that was done by thousands. Opponents of this amendment have been very vocal. You can read David Welch’s and Tim Garret’s columns in The Lens and Brian Denzer’s letter on NolaStat’s website to learn more about the arguments against this proposed amendment.
