New Orleans District Planning
EDSA was selected as one of four national lead district planning consultants for The Unified New Orleans Plan (UNOP). The comprehensive recovery and rebuilding plans were developed to allow City and State officials to coordinate post-disaster recovery more efficiently and effectively and helped New Orleans comply with necessary federal mandates. The plans also identified critical needs of investment, so private and public entities know how to best provide assistance. The Unified New Orleans Plan was created to include all districts in the planning of the City’s large scale infrastructure needs.
EDSA prepared comprehensive District Plans for five of the City’s thirteen districts including: District 5, Districts 9, 10 and 11 and District 12. The final phase of the New Orleans Planning process resulted in 13 complete planning district plans and one city-wide plan.
