Posted By Bradley O'Neil, Foundation for Louisiana, Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Foundation for Louisiana is proud to host its first Community Training on the Citizens’s Guide to Land Use and Urban Design

When: Tuesday, April 24th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.

Where: American Red Cross Southeast LA Chapter Building, 2640 Canal St., New Orleans, LA 70119

Why: This training will help residents gain knowledge in land use planning, urban design issues and the participation process. It will include topics such as:

  1. How to read a Land Use map: Understanding the basics of each land use category, the difference between density and intensity and how changes in land use can impact a community.
  2. How Urban Design elements relate to neighborhood character and help neighborhoods work. What to look for when reading design documents such as renderings.
  3. Residents’ role in the planning process and how to participate effectively.
  4. How to develop a proactive Urban Design and Land Use strategy for a community, including setting an agenda and effectively distributing information.

Copies of the guides will be available at the event. However, due to limited quantities, if you have already received a copy please carry it with you.

Please RSVP to or call 225-772-1510 or 504-309-0468 by Saturday, April 21st.

The guides are also available for free download here

We look forward to seeing you there!
