My administration will focus on providing more affordable housing for home ownership and for renters. We will start by utilizing the properties that were given to the City after Hurricane Katrina through the Road Home Program. Those properties are now being managed by the New Orleans Regional Authority (NORA). The Mayor appoints the Board at that agency. We will also collaborate with other organizations and groups that are working in the area of affordable housing to expand our efforts. We will reduce the number of blighted properties in our City by seizing them as quickly as we can and placing them back into commerce. Home ownership will be a priority with all blighted and abandoned houses in our neighborhoods.
Work to develop more lower income housing.
Utilize the remaining properties from NORA to build neighborhoods.
