The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu

Master Plan

The Plan for the 21st Century, commonly referred to as the Master Plan, is a City Charter-mandated planning framework for the core systems that shape New Orleans’ physical, social, environmental, and economic future. The Plan for the 21st Century reflects the values and priorities that emerged through a community participation process and is grounded in information assembled for the first time in one place. In 2010, the Plan was unanimously adopted by both the City Planning Commission and the City Council and was signed by Mayor Mitchell Landrieu.

Master Plan Amendments

The City Charter allows Master Plan amendment applications once per year and requires a Master Plan amendment application process at least once every five years. In 2012, the City Planning Commission and the City Council took action on the first set of Master Plan amendments. City Planning staff is currently working to integrate the amendments into the document and its maps. Please check with the CPC staff to determine a site’s future land use designation.
