Citizen Participation Town Hall Meeting

Citizen Participation Town Hall Meeting

Saturday, March 19

9:00 – 11:30 AM

Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center

1618 O.C. Haley Boulevard

This summer, the City of New Orleans will adopt its Citizen Participation Program (CPP).  Mandated by the Unified New Orleans Plan, the November 2008 City Charter amendment and the Master Plan, the CPP will create a citywide structure for citizens to be engaged in city government policy-setting and decision-making. As the City Planning Commission begin work on the New Orleans CPP, it is important that all New Orleans residents are informed and involved in the process.

In order to provide the people of New Orleans with an opportunity to learn about CPPs in other cities, Neighborhoods Partnership Network and the Committee for a Better New Orleans invite you to hear about Citizen Participation practices and principles from neighborhood, business and government leaders with first-hand CPP experience. Please join us in welcoming the following community leaders from Birmingham for a round table discussion of the ins and outs of Citizen Participation:

  • Bernard Kincaid, former mayor of Birmingham and CPP neighborhood leader
  • Valerie Abbott, current member of the Birmingham City Council
  • Charlie Faulkner, former CEO of Princeton Baptist Hospital in Birmingham
  • Don Lupo, Director of the Birmingham Mayor’s Office of Citizen Assistance
  • Alison Glascock, President of the Highland Park Neighborhood Association (Birmingham)
  • Doris Powell, President of the Fountain Heights Neighborhood Association (Birmingham)

Come join the conversation to make certain that the

New Orleans Citizen Participation Program represents YOU!
