Got neighborhoods?

Will our neighborhoods be saved? The level of investment in rebuilding the infrastructure of our neighborhoods will in large part determine how liveable they are in the future. So who should be allowed to make those decisions, and when will planners finally get down to the business of determining what the projects are, rather than continuing to poll us for how we feel, generally, about levees, hospitals, and schools?

The perspective of two Treme residents on the first Unified New Orleans Plan Community Congress was posted yesterday on the Community Gumbo site.

In his role as the Executive Director of the Tipitina’s Foundation, Bill Taylor is a strong advocate for preserving New Orleans neighborhoods as purveyors of New Orleans’ musical culture. Tipitina’s is hosting a fundraiser Monday night to benefit New Orleans musicians.
