Dear Residents and Friends of District “A”,
I would like you to know about two ways you can be involved in how our city is working to provide recreational opportunities for all our residents through participating in upcoming public meetings about NORDC and the Lafitte Greenway Corridor.
CITY TO HOST COMMUNITY MEETINGS ON NORDC NEIGHBORHOOD PARTICIPATION PLAN
The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Engagement will host 7 community meetings to present the Neighborhood Participation Plan (NPP) for the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC). These meetings are a chance for residents to give input on the NPP framework.
In an effort to produce a more citizen-driven NORDC, the Neighborhood Engagement Office and NORDC have recommended a community advisory structure known as the NORDC NPP. A structural framework was approved by the NORDC Commissioners in July. Additional input from citizens will be considered as the Mayor’s Neighborhood Engagement Office finalizes the full plan. These community meetings are an opportunity for residents who use NORDC facilities and programs to be involved in the decision making. NORDC and the Mayor’s Neighborhood Engagement Office will solicit input, suggestions, and concerns from community members.
The NORDC NPP community meetings will take place on the following dates and locations. All meetings will begin at 5:30p.m.and end at 7:00p.m. For further questions please contact NORDC at: (504) 658-7806.
The District A meeting is scheduled for October 1. Meeting dates and locations are listed below:
