    June 2015 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    Residents are rising up in New Orleans and demanding more and better opportunities for input! One of the most damaged areas of New Orleans in the post-Katrina levee failures was the lower 9th Ward.  To this day, this area is less than 50% rebuilt.  However, those residents who have rebuilt and returned are a...

    March 2015 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    Spring is in the air here in New Orleans, and we are happy to see more fruits of our labors sprouting up like the leaves and flowers! Within a week, we will be submitting to the City Planning Commission our report on the Neighborhood Participation Plan (NPP).  The NPP is the first major part of the overall Citizen...

    December 2014 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    We've been wondering why we all felt so worn out around here -- then we looked back at all that has been accomplished in the last few months and realized we earned the right to feel that way! Nothing was bigger than the release this week of the report on our Latino Community Health Survey in New Orleans, conducted in...

    September 2014 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    The winding down of summer coincides with putting the finishing touches on a couple of major components of our ongoing citizen participation work -- and we're still keeping the heat on with the New Orleans answer to the Ice Bucket Challenge! The most exciting piece is completing the report on our Latino Community Health...

    July 2014 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    There is a myth that in New Orleans in summer everything slows down.  We don't know the origin of that myth, but it sure isn't CBNO:  we've just released our new Blight Resource Guide, our Latino Community Health Survey report is almost completed, we just completed neighborhood mapping in another Planning...

    April 2014 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    Spring is busting out all over New Orleans, and CBNO is busting out in search of community input and engagement! We have begun conducting surveys of residents, neighborhoods and businesses about the City Planning Commission's Neighborhood Participation Plan (NPP), which is the first major piece of our comprehensive Citizen...

    January 2014 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President, Committee for a Better New Orleans
    It is election season in New Orleans:  on February 1, we will vote for mayor and six of the seven City Council seats (one incumbent did not draw an opponent).  It has been exciting to see that civic engagement and reforming the city budget process to include meaningful community input have been high-visibility...

    October 2013 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    The big win finally got put in the books, and we are happily at work consolidating the victory benefits! Thirteen months after it was initially approved by the New Orleans City Planning Commission ... three months after it was approved as policy by the New Orleans City Council ... multiple meetings later than it was...

    August 2013 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President, Committee for a Better New Orleans
    Perhaps it is just the summer heat in New Orleans, but things have been moving more slowly than we would like over the past few months.  While our work to bring Participatory Budgeting to New Orleans is engaging a much greater number of people, implementation of the Neighborhood Participation Plan (NPP) is on hold...

    May 2013 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    We are very happily celebrating the final step in the City of New Orleans' formal adoption of both policy and legal code that establishes the Early Notification System of the NOLA CPP model in our city.  First passed in policy form by the City Planning Commission last July, the policy document and amendments to the...

    February 2013 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    Despite the distractions of Super Bowl (which severely restricted access to downtown New Orleans for an entire week) and Mardi Gras, the Citizen Participation Project team has been completing some ongoing work and laying the groundwork for an immensely productive 2013.  The early part of the year is typically an...

    The New Orleans Citizen Participation project is wrapping up one of its most successful years ever!

    September 2012 Project Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President
    First, we are happy to report that New Orleans survived Hurricane Isaac with little worse than a lot of downed trees and extensive power outages.  However, the situation once again pointed out the need for a structured Citizen Participation Program, including high-quality, multi-modal lines of communications.  The...

    2011 Year-End Report
    By - Keith Twitchell - President, Commmittee for a Better New Orleans
    The end of 2011 finds the New Orleans Citizen Participation Project (CPP) experiencing a mix of frustration and optimism.  The frustration comes because the indications at the beginning of the year were that New Orleans city government was going to adopt the CPP sometime this past summer and we could move into...

    NOLA CPP Project Update
    By - Keith Twitchell - President, Commmittee for a Better New Orleans
    Summer in New Orleans is traditionally a very slow time, but not for the New Orleans Citizen Participation Project this year! Internal debates within city government slowed the city's process to produce the final NOLA CPP design, but we were privileged to work closely with the director of the Neighborhood Engagement Office,...

    NOLA CPP Update
    By - Hillary Brown - Pilot Project Coordinator
    The NOLA CPP team has finished pilot project reports, one on the Gentilly Civic Improvement Association and one on the Greater New Orleans Housing Alliance. We hope both of these reports will inform the process to adopt a participation system for the city of New Orleans. Additionally, the NOLA CPP team is currently working...
