    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!

    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...

    February 2013 Project Report

    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...

    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!
