At today’s (May 2, 2013) meeting, the City Council voted 7 to 0 to approve City Planning Commission’s Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP) for land use actions. The NPP will provide early notice to nearby residents and neighborhood groups. It will also require meetings between applicant (the developer, business owner, or the City) and the nearby residents and neighborhoods. This is a significant step forward that will end “Planning by Surprise” in New Orleans.
We would like to thank everyone who helped make the NPP a reality: City Planning Commission, CPC staff, City Council, City Council staff, and all of the New Orleans residents and neighborhood who have called for and provided input into the Neighborhood Participation Program. You can find the approved NPP on the City Planning Commission website at this link: http://new.nola.gov/city-planning/neighborhood-participation-program/
If you have any questions about the NPP, please contact Nick Kindel at firstname.lastname@example.org or (504) 267-4665. We look forward to continuing to work with the City Planning Commission staff to help ensure the successful implementation of the Neighborhood Participation Program!
