At its meeting earlier this week, the City Planning Commission indicated that they were still waiting for the mayor’s appointments to the NPP Task Force and his approval of the proposed meeting dates before announcing the formal launch of the process to produce the final version of the NPP/CPP. CPC stated that they expect to get this information from the Mayor’s Office by May 1.
City Planning also said that there is a possibility that the budget for the NPP process may get cut from $60,000 to $30,000. The NOLA CPP team believes that it is important that NPP process is fully funded in order to ensure a robust process. If the funding is cut, this could mean less outreach, less support from consultants, and no facilitator for the NPP Task Force. We urge that the full funding allocated by City Council be provided for the NPP process.
