Oak Park Stormwater Management & Flood Mitigation


Management and Flood Mitigation Project transforms a cluster of five vacant parcels on Perlita Street, as well as a portion of the adjacent public right-of-way (ROW) on Perlita Street, into a stormwater management area that reduces the risk of flooding for the surrounding neighborhood. The vacant parcels are five contiguous New Orleans Redevelopment Authority (NORA) owned parcels that are situated mid-block on the east side of Perlita Street, with Aviators Street to the north and Burbank Drive to the south.
