Abstract:The Peoples' Plan is a strategic action plan for the recovery of the 9th Ward. It was created based on conversations with residents-some struggling to return home, others intent on remaining in a neighborhood that has always been their own. The Peoples' Plan provides a thorough assessment of what must be done to provide recovery in one of the hardest hit areas of the City, and provides a recovery model for all badly flooded areas. The Plan seeks to transform the 9th Ward as it is rebuilt. The proposed transformation will be resident-driven and will provide improved employment opportunities, better education programs as well as greater access to healthcare, childcare and numerous other community services.
