The city-owned property represents a significant tool to support the City in achieving its quality-of-life goals. Because many departments have a role in property maintenance, acquisition, disposition and development, there is a need for clarity of roles and singularity of purpose.

“We need to leverage all available assets to increase housing and development opportunities for our residents. This framework will help us utilize City-owned properties were needed to provide equitable opportunities for our people,” said Mayor LaToya Cantrell.

“The Redevelopment Framework is a holistic approach to transform City-owned property into community assets that drive investment and support the creation of equitable, inclusive, amenity-rich neighborhoods for New Orleans residents,” said Nicole Heyman, Director, Office of Community Assets and Investment.

The Redevelopment Framework Executive Order forms an internal working group to ensure City-owned properties are utilized strategically to further equitable community and economic development goals.
