Mission

NEWCITY Neighborhood Partnership is a coalition of over 75 stakeholders committed to ensuring catalytic, place-based development in Tremé and Lower Mid-City.

 

Activities

NEWCITY meets on a monthly basis to share information and discuss development and policy affecting the neighborhood. The partners also share information regularly through and email list. NEWCITY forms working groups to advocate on specific specific project/issues in the neighborhoods.

 

History

Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, there has been extraordinary investment in Tremé and Lower Mid-City. These neighborhoods are slated to receive or have begun to receive over $4.2 billion of investment in the form of hospitals, affordable housing, schools, parks, and transportation improvements. Recognizing the synergistic opportunities, in 2007 a group of 15 community leaders and partners spearheaded the formation of NEWCITY Neighborhood Partnership. The partners hoped to maximize the benefit of the investments by sharing resources and information, identify and addressing critical issues and projects, and coordinating plans. Today, NEWCITY Neighborhood Partnership is comprised of over 75 stakeholders, including developers, funders, neighborhood associations, service providers, faith-based groups, schools and universities, and government agencies.
