Latest Revision to the NOLA CPP Model

Over the past few months, a group of dedicated citizens have been working on revisions to the Communities of Interest Section of the NOLA CPP Model. These revisions are designed to simplify this Section of the Model and to provide a framework for how non-geographically based groups can participate.

We have submitted this version of the NOLA CPP Model to the City Planning Commission staff. City Planning will review this version of the NOLA CPP Model as part of their process to develop a Neighborhood Participation Program.
