PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

In 2016, the City of New Orleans was awarded $141 million dollars from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (or HUD) to implement a wide-ranging green infrastructure project in the City’s Gentilly neighborhood. The main goal of this project, known as the “Gentilly Resilience District,” was fairly straightforward: slow down soil subsidence and take pressure off of the City’s complex drainage system by retaining groundwater and capturing stormwater on the landscape during rain events.

This Professional Development session will provide an overview of the City of New Orleans’ resilience strategy, Resilient New Orleans and how green infrastructure is being used to reduce frequent flooding and improve quality of life.
