The New Orleans Citizen Participation Project will be hosting a forum to discuss citizen participation this January! The Forum will serve as an educational meeting, comparing the various CPP proposals that are currently being discussed, from the NOLACPP Draft Model to Chapter 15 of the Master Plan and the Bureau of Governmental Research recommendations. We strongly encourage people to come out, look over the proposals, and provide input on the proposals.
This forum will take place on:
Saturday, January 16th
9:30am until 12:00pm
at the Urban League New Orleans at 2322 Canal Street.
We will be posting materials that will be used at the forum for reivew in the coming weeks.
Additionally, we will be holding a few working sessions to prepare for the forum. These sessions will be on:
Wednesday, January 6th
3:30pm – 7:30pm
4902 Canal Street, 3rd floor
This working session will be focused on reviewing the model, in order to make sure that the model at the upcoming forum is as close to representative of our multiple participants wishes as possible. You do not have to attend the entire session; rather, the large window of time is meant to offer more flexibility for people to come at an opportune time for them.
The next working session will be:
Monday, January 11th
5:00pm – 7:30pm
4902 Canal Street, 3rd Floor
We will be reviewing materials for the forum and doing general forum planning at this meeting.
We will be sending out the latest draft NOLACPP model and the comparison matrix handout for the forum on Dec. 30th.
All of us at NOLACPP wish you a safe and happy holiday season, and a Happy New Year!
