What is resilience?

  • Capacity of cities to function so that the people living and working in the cities - particularly the poor and vulnerable - survive and thrive no matter what stresses or shocks they encounter
  • Capacity to anticipate significant multi-hazard threats, to reduce overall the community's vulnerability to hazard events, and to respond to and recover from specific hazard events when they occur
  • Capacity to cope with and recover from present-day risks
  • Capacity to adapt to changing conditions, including uncertain, unknown, or unpredictable risks

What are the project goals?

  • Develop a share definition of resilient commercial corridors for New Orleans
  • Create a measurable and actionable methodology for assessing the resilience of commercial corridors or Main Streets
  • Apply methodology to 6 corridors in the city and develop individualized recommendations for each to address resiliency gaps
  • Develop how-to guides for businesses for improving resiliency as applied to business operations and for businesses/property-owners for improving building resilency

What corridors are being studied?

  • Alcee Fortier Boulevard (Chef Menteur Highway to Michoud Lagoon)
  • Broad Street (Tulane Avenue to Bayou Road)
  • Newton Street (Teche Street to Behrman Avenue)
  • Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard (Philip Street to Calliope Street)
  • Saint Bernard Avenue (North Claiborne Avenue to Broad Street)
  • Saint Claude Avenue (Elysian Fields Avenue to Press Street)
