In 2011, the New Orleans City Council passed the New Orleans Complete Streets Ordinance, which calls for establishing an advisory committee to oversee implementation and progress of the Complete Streets Program. View a copy of the Complete Streets Policy ordinance here. The goal of the ordinance is “to accommodate and encourage travel for all users in a balanced, responsible and equitable manner consistent with, and supportive of, the surrounding community.”
The ordinance also calls for establishing a Complete Streets Advisory Committee which includes representatives from key City agencies and three, one-year positions for representatives of local transportation advocacy organizations. DPW is currently accepting applications for the three advocacy group representatives. Interested parties should review the criteria for participating in the Complete Streets Advisory Committee here and submit a one-page letter of interest to Louis Haywood, email@example.com, Complete Streets Manager, by 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30, 2013.
Minutes from the first internal Complete Streets coordination meeting are available here.
