Lessons from Katrina
How A Community Can Spearhead Successful Disaster Recovery
Belfer Center Programs or Projects: Broadmoor Project: New Orleans
This document is intended to serve as a guidebook to a community-driven planning process. It provides a phase-by-phase analysis of the planning and implementation process for neighborhood redevelopment, complete with sample documentation and details of the myriad components that make up such a process. It is written based on the model of Broadmoor, a New Orleans neighborhood that sustained severe flood damage from Hurricane Katrina. The Broadmoor community-driven planning and implementation model, as outlined in this guidebook, is intended to be applied to other New Orleans neighborhoods, communities throughout the Gulf Coast, and other communities around the world facing post-disaster recovery and reconstruction.
