New Orleans Recreation Development Commission Neighborhood Participation Process (NORDC NPP)
The Mayor's Neighborhood Engagement Office was asked in 2011 to develop a Neighborhood Participation Process (NPP) for the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC). After more than 15 months researching, discussing and vetting with NORDC staff, commissioners and the general community,the NORDC NPP was approved during NORDC’s January 2013 public meeting.
As of May 2014, the Mayor’s Neighborhood Engagement Office has established ten (10) out of fifteen (15) Community Advisory Teams; all districts currently have at least one (1) advisory team.
The application for individuals to sign up to join a Community Advisory Team (CAT) is now available below. For more information about the NORDC NPP, please refer to the key documents below or contact Greg Lawson at 504.658.4965.
