description  
Plan Release Date: September 23, 2006
Funding Agency: New Orleans City Council (with unused CDBG money)
cost: $2.974 Million

With BNOB drawing increased public skepticism, the City Council announced on April 7th, 2006, that they had hired a team led by Miami-based housing consultant Paul Lambert and Sheila Danzey of New Orleans to draw up plans for 46 Orleans Parish neighborhoods that were significantly flooded by Katrina.[1] This new process was christened the New Orleans Neighborhoods Rebuilding Plan (NOLANRP), but is commonly given the eponymous title the “Lambert Plan”. The funding for this process came from $2.9 million in leftover CDBG funds for an earlier, pre-Katrina project.

Lambert and Danzey assigned teams of architects and planners to multiple neighborhoods using the district boundaries established by the Bring New Orleans Back Commission. Most districts were assigned a single planning team (the exception being Planning District 4 where neighborhoods were divided between two teams). Hiring decisions were made with little public input, and the neighborhood boundaries used often did not line up with informal boundaries understood by active neighborhood associations, causing public skepticism from the outset. Despite continuing confusion about the process itself and whether it would be considered complete enough to satisfy funding requirements, 46 separate plans were drafted and finalized by September 23, 2006.[2] The process involved 84 published meetings (including three in Houston, Atlanta, and Baton Rouge) and, according to Lambert, the participation of 7,500 residents city-wide.

Last semester, my friend (Jed Horne) and I did an independent study through our urban planning graduate school program at University of California, Berkeley. Come check out our webpage. It includes our analysis of the Lambert plans.
