Building a new New Orleans East

What does it take to build a city?

 

The basic necessities of a city are people, a means for those people to support themselves financially, land to build on, housing, schools, retail, green space, infrastructure (roads, transportation, utilities, water supply, waste management, etc.), public safety, some form of governance and methods of funding public activities.

New Orleans East has all of those things, yet, it still struggles in many ways.

If you could build a new New Orleans East from scratch, what would you do differently? What would you do that has never been done? What would you stop doing that’s not working?

Please leave a comment about what you would do, if given the power and/or money needed, to change New Orleans East.
