ditti Tim Garret’s comments. for me the workshop was well worth the time to advocate for a flood. SFE New Orleans.
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

I want to express my thanks to NPN for soliciting and assembling this much-needed community input, and to those residents to contributed to the process of shaping the CZO, including calling out deficiencies in how the CZO is being crafted.
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.

CPC has been diligent in having to reach-out to all stakeholders – residents, neighborhood organizations, businesses, non-profit social service agencies, businesses, developers, educational institutions and others. The document must be a representation of the desires or each of the stakeholders. The preservation of the physical characteristics of neighborhood is a very delicate and important element in maintaining New Orleans’s heritage and culture. Preservation does not mean keeping New Orleans like a museum by taking a antiquarian approach. I means being judicious and articulate to accept change and as part of a living – lively, evolving organic urban enterprise. Therefore, all recommendations in the previous hearings and comments are not found in the revised Draft. Taking a myopic view of the CZO is not helpful.
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

The Holy Cross Neighborhood has a historic 40 foot height limit that has not been honored by the CZO. This change has been consistently and loudly opposed by hundreds of Lower Ninth Ward residents. MU-1 is wholly inappropriate for the former Holy Cross School site and inconsistent with the Master Plan.
