The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu

Neighborhood Participation Program for Land Use Actions

The City Planning Commission's Rules, Policies, Procedures and Neighborhood Relations Committee will hold a Special Public Hearing on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 in the City Council Chambers (City Hall Room 1E07).  The Public Hearing will take place after the regular meeting of the City Planning Commission, but no earlier then 5 pm.  

December 8, 2015 Public Hearing Notice

The City Charter calls for “a system of organized and effective neighborhood participation in land use decisions and other issues that affect quality of life.” The purpose of the Neighborhood Participation Program for Land Use actions is to provide timely notification of any proposed land use action affecting a neighborhood and to provide the opportunity for meaningful neighborhood review of and comment on such proposals.

In July 2012, the City Planning Commission (CPC) adopted the Neighborhood Participation Program (NPP) for Land Use Actions, a report recommending improvements to the CPC’s public notification and engagement processes. This report has been approved by the City Council and key portions have been implemented through changes to the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance.
