As an intern for and with the Department for Planning and Urban Studies at the University of New Orleans, UTNA member Graham Hayes has been working on a project to use public data to most effectively address quality of life issues and allocate resources for a given area. Graham is focusing his research on our neighborhood with the larger goal of creating a framework for city council and neighborhood associations to more effectively tackle quality of life issues. The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA), an international organization of planners and geographers, has selected Graham’s project to assist with and will be visiting our neighborhood on Sept. 8 at 8:00 am to conduct and property and street condition survey for the blocks surrounding Banneker Elementary. Everyone is invited to come out and join Graham and URISA as they collect valuable information for our neighborhood.
