End of the Year Policy Wins

New Orleans City Council closed out 2021 by unanimously passing two motions that are big wins for affordable housing. First, Council approved the McDonogh 7 school building for an affordable housing development that will largely serve elderly Black New Orleanians in a vibrant, well-resourced neighborhood. Second, Council approved the Neighborhood-Scale Affordable Housing Zoning Amendment, which will allow for the development of 3- and 4-plexes that require at least one unit to be affordable. Both of these wins faced fierce NIMBY opposition, and we are grateful that City Council approved both opportunities for more affordable housing in New Orleans.
