The Regional Planning Commission, in partnership with the City of New Orleans, analyzed conditions along General Meyer Avenue in Algiers to identify improvements from Behrman Ave. to Woodland Dr. that would promote a Complete Streets enhancement of the corridor. In coordinating community engagement and outreach efforts for this initiative, The Hawthorne Agency implemented various communications strategies to receive public input regarding the re-configuration of General Meyer Avenue into a safer and more pedestrian and bicycle friendly corridor. Setting forth creative methodologies to urge the community’s participation and document their ideas and concerns regarding specific transportation and mobility needs along the General Meyer Corridor were at the core of this outreach plan. The initial public meeting was attended by nearly 100 members of the community who were introduced to Complete Streets and provided informed feedback to the project team to facilitate the study.
