A look at the rebuilding process in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and the lessons learned. Important considerations in rebuilding include plans for housing, economic development, neighborhood renewal, health and education, and enhanced public institutions and organizations. It's important to focus on creating a strategic framework for restoring communities, not just buildings. Focus in particular on young adults -- 18-24 -- because they are the future of the community.

  • Pg 2 This portrait of Sydney as an economic force underpinned by its human resources is important to understand because the future of Sydney depends on the quality and desireability of the city to support a vital and diverse population. In this regard, Sydney’s future is not guaranteed. World capital and human resources are very mobile, unlike factories or natural resources. In essence, the future of Sydney depends on its ability to be attractive to the people we have and to maintain our attractiveness for future generations.

  • RETOOLING GOVERNMENT: HOUSING OPPORTUNITYZONES The City of New Orleans has established “Housing Opportunity Zones” to strategically direct disaster-recovery resources for homeownership incentives, construction financing, and technical assistance. In addition, the City is employing traditionally allocated housing funds towards three main policy goals: 1) Homebuyer Assistance: Funding for households to purchase homes and close financing gaps due to insufficient “Road Home” and insurance proceeds. 2) Owner Occupied & Rental Housing Rehabilitation: Funding for rehabilitation assistance to elderly or disabled households; and funding towards substantial and minor property repairs. 3) Public Services & Facilities: Funding for public services and facilities developed by qualifying private entities.
