NEW ORLEANS - In her third year since taking office, District "E" Councilwoman Cyndi Nguyen has released a special report highlighting some of her proudest accomplishments for the residents and families of District E.
The comprehensive report, titled "A Roadmap to Revitalization," includes updates on various projects and initiatives across several key focus areas: infrastructure with road work, drainage, blighted properties, economic development, and job creation, with the opening of over 200 new businesses. The report also speaks to a policy that put a moratorium on discount and dollar stores throughout the city, neighborhood engagement that focused on the health and welfare of residents, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing access to food, PPE’s and weekly updates on social media, and capital improvements by securing funding for crime and dumping cameras in the district.
The report includes Councilwoman Nguyen's vision for District E’s future, noting several new and existing developments taking place in the months ahead.
"Over the last three years, District E has had many notable successes in economic and community development,” said Councilwoman Nguyen. “The redevelopment of the blighted 'Caveman' Highrise Hotel and the opening of the first grocery store in the Lower Ninth Ward since Hurricane Katrina were huge steps in the right direction. The City has also made investments in Lincoln Beach, the former Six Flags site, and the new Wetland Park and Nature Trail along the Florida Avenue corridor. Improvements are being made all across the district to increase the quality of life and to create positive economic development to move District E forward and revitalize the local economy.”
