|Yes or No – A Master Plan with the Force of Law
An introduction to the ballot initiative – Master Plan with the Force of Law –
A City-Works Symposium Series
City-Works, in partnership with the Center for Urban and Public Affairs at the University of New Orleans, is hosting a Symposium Series addressing issues of sustainable land-use and development in New Orleans.
Voters in New Orleans will go to the polls on November 4th to decide whether or not to approve an amendment to the Home Rule Charter that will give legal standing to the city’s Master Plan.
This is a very important, but complicated issue. We will, therefore, have four of the city’s most knowledgeable individuals speak on the issue on Tuesday night. Bill Borah, Marshall Truehill Jr., Janet Howard, and John Lovett will each present their analysis of the ballot initiative.
Bill Borah is the director of SmartGrowth Louisiana and has been advocating for this change for many years.
Marshall Truehill, Jr. is a former City Planning Commissioner and has been intimately involved in land-use decisions all across the city.
Janet Howard is the President of the Bureau of Governmental Research and will explain the position BGR has taken on the ballot initiative.
John Lovett is a professor at Loyola Law School and is a premier land-use expert in the city.
We are very pleased to bring together these experts to help us all understand a very complicated question.
“Yes or No – A Master Plan with the Force of Law” will take place Tuesday, October 14th from 6-8:00 pm.
