July 12 '07: The Times-Picayune reported in June that the Louisiana Recovery Authority has authorized the New Orleans' city-wide recovery plan which will "release $117 million in federal grants for infrastructure repairs."
In addition to the federal money to be given to city officials with the reconstruction efforts, "Board members, meeting at the State Capital, also approved a similar plan created by residents of St. Bernard Parish, which is slated to get $26.3 million from the LRA," the Times-Picayune reported.The UNOP was "organized to create a comprehensive post Katrina Recovery Plan for the city of New Orleans," the website read. The website's functions allow for residents to watch the administrative, and rebuilding efforts as they unfold. Residents are also given a place to submit their suggestions and complaints and feedback about rebuilding efforts. According to the Times-Picayune, "The city's redevelopment plan grew out of the Unified New Orleans Plan, as well as at least seven other planning processes that followed the flood."
