Why this Matters
For My Organization
Smart growth helps businesses do more business. Whether it’s recruiting and retaining a reliable workforce, increasing access to jobs through better transportation options, contributing to the economic vitality of downtowns or attracting the millennial generation and creative class, smart growth helps workers, businesses and customers connect.
For New Orleans
Development decisions affect many of the things that touch people's everyday lives - their homes, their health, the schools their children attend, the taxes they pay, their daily commute, the natural environment around them, economic growth in their community, and opportunities to achieve their dreams and goals. What, where, and how communities build will affect their residents' lives for generations to come.
