Public participation is an essential ingredient that enriches the development planning for the New Orleans Riverfront. Throughout the creation of the Development Plan and the esing of Crescent Park, the design team engaged the community at several different levels.
During the Development Plan Phase, the entire public was invited to more than a dozen forums where the design team presented and received comments including one meeting each for the Upriver, Downriver and Offriver neighborhoods. The team also accepted the invitations of many neighborhood groups and citizens to present in various public meetings. Following the public presentation of the final draft, the design received a standing ovation then went back to work to implement the suggestions of the public.
During the design phases of Crescent Park, the public was again regularly engaged through public meetings.
To ensure the transparency and accessibility of this process, we invite you to be a part of our upcoming public meetings and view the minutes from our past public meetings.
