The City hosted a presentation in October 2013 on Street Repairs:http://recoveryroads.nola.gov/Portals/0/Industry%20Day%20pres%20Oct%2025%202012%20FINAL.pdf
on p. 69 the "Road to Recovery Program" is outlined:
● This is part of a larger City-wide, multi-year infrastructure repair/recovery effort funded by FEMA.● The intent of the Recovery Roads Program is to restore the roads and sidewalks in the City to their pre-Katrina condition.
● Only damage directly attributed to Hurricane Katrina as determined by FEMA on minor (non-federal) streets is eligible for repair under this program.
● This program will be managed on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis.
Though the intended audience was contractors and such – Neighborhoods have not been given a similar presentation.
Looks like the Carrollton Area is not included in the priority list for FEMA funded projects.
Although according to p.8, the Carrollton area is awaiting a "new PW [project worksheet]. So it may be that FEMA has not yet approved work for this area yet.
Yet p.71 says:
● All 72 neighborhood assessments have been completed as of Spring 2012.
So... are there funds or aren't their funds for Carrollton?
And for what kinds of "repairs"?
