NORDC Community Advisory Teams
About the Program
The New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC), in conjunction with the Neighborhood Engagement Office, has established a neighborhood participation process for recreation. The Community Advisory Team (CAT) system provides a framework for community members to give feedback and recommendations to NORDC on recreation programming and park maintenance.
There are 15 NORDC Community Advisory Teams (CATs), three per City Council District, that represent a range of five to twelve parks in their respective districts. Team members are citizen volunteers of all ages who serve for one year. Each CAT hosts quarterly public meetings to discuss the parks represented by their team and to compile feedback and recommendations to NORDC. For more information about the NORDC CAT program, please refer to the links below or contact Greg Lawson at (504) 658-4965.
