Creating a Plan for the Future of Post-Katrina New Orleans by Creating a Zoning Code
New Orleans is now focusing on the long-term future and creating a zoning code to help achieve that future. How and where should New Orleans grow in the next twenty years? How can the city bring its unique culture, diversity and historic urban fabric into the 21st century, while creating new opportunities for all New Orleanians? The New Orleans City Planning Commission is preparing a citywide Master Plan to guide the long-term physical development of the city, along with a new, user-friendly Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO). A consultant team led by Goody Clancy and made up of national and New Orleans-based experts will assist the City Planning Commission and the community in creating the Master Plan and new CZO.
