Update: The New Orleans East meeting on September 11 had to be postponed. We will reschedule this meeting for a later date and will let everyone know once we have confirmed the details.
This fall, the New Orleans City Council will be voting on Text Amendment #19 to the Master Plan. If passed in its current form, Amendment #19 would remove District Councils, currently a part of the proposed Neighborhood Participation Process, from the Master Plan.
There is a lot of confusion regarding District Councils, and what their role is within a formalized participation process. In the interest of making sure the community is informed about what a District Council is before any decisions are made, the Committee for a Better New Orleans is hosting a series of debates featuring proponents and opponents of District Councils. The two sides will debate the role of District Councils, and what they could mean for our city.
Moderated by WDSU’s Norman Robinson, the debates will take place around the city in order to maximize accessibility. The dates and locations are:
