The Neighborhoods Partnership Network (NPN) today announced it will convene a neighborhood roundtable on the City's proposed Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) on Thursday, September 25th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Tulane City Center, 1725 Baronne Street in Central City. The event will help inform a set of citywide recommendations the organization will submit prior to City Council's public comment session next week. Click here to view full media advisory.
NOTE to Lucas Diaz: I’ve stumbled on a process to apply high performance systems engineering practices to solve community problems. It looks as if it were developed with NPN in mind. I’m reading the book now and will forward a review when I finish. Here’s the publishers site http://www.springer.com/psychology/community+psychology/book/978-1-4614-8762-3
If ever there were a solid model for the City to follow for engaging the public in policy matters, THIS IS IT! I hope the City Council and Mayor’s office take heed.
It is also important that the CZO include a CPP component. Because the CPP process may not be fully developed does not mean that the CZO cannot move forward. It is imperative that the CZO move forward
