NEO statement on City Council passing City Planning’s Neighborhood Participation Program

From the Mayor’s Neighborhood Engagement Office:

 

City Council passes the Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP) for Land Use Actions 
Dear Neighborhood Leaders,

Today, by request of the Landrieu Administration, the City Council passed the Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP) for Land Use Actions.  This is a major milestone, and I’d like to thank you for your engagement and hard work to make it happen.  Working together with the City Council, the City Planning Commission, neighborhood and business leaders, we now have a streamlined process that makes sense.

Mayor Landrieu has said, “We are building a city for the ages.”  To that end, we need clear and predictable rules for businesses and developers, and we need meaningful dialogue with neighborhoods.  The Neighborhood Participation Plan for Land Use Actions encourages early citizen involvement in the development review process and improves communication between the development community, citizens, and the City of New Orleans.

We look forward to working with you as the City implements the Neighborhood Participation Plan for Land Use Actions.

Sincerely,

Mayor’s Neighborhood Engagement Office
