Livable Claiborne Communities Study

The Livable Claiborne Communities (LCC) Study encompasses seven diverse neighborhoods and a portion of the Central Business District in the heart of New Orleans.  Supported by grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and from the U.S. Department of Transportation/Federal Highway Administration, the LCC Study links community revitalization analysis and recommendations for the Claiborne Corridor with transportation and redevelopment scenarios. 

Claiborne Corridor neighborhoods represent New Orleans’ uniqueness, the promise of economic innovation and inclusion, and access to cultural, employment, transportation and housing resources.

The Claiborne Corridor embodies many of the challenges and opportunities facing New Orleans, including:

  • Infrastructure and resilience
  • Public safety
  • Education and workforce development
  • Disparities and equity
  • Housing
  • Recreation

A community-participation process included interviews, public meetings under the oversight of a governance and project advisory committee, and informed data analyses yielding the final LCC Study recommendations.  Principals and aspirational goals guiding the strategy recommendations in this Study are derived from the community participation process and are intended to further an approach that benefits people, the environment, and the economy:

  • Equity: just and fair inclusion in allocation of benefits and costs and in decision-making
  • Choice: creation of places of opportunity with choices in places to live, in transportation, and in economic options
  • Sustainability: community preservation and harnessing of green systems to help create places that enhance quality of life through a commitment to living with water in the New Orleans context

Five overarching goals that emerged from the community discussion are:

  • Preservation of our culture and identity
  • Sustainable solutions for our flood-prone environment
  • Equitable access to economic prosperity
  • Managed change to benefit the existing community
  • Enhanced transportation choice and access

The LCC Study provides a holistic approach to communtiiy revitalization combined with a set of alternative scenarios for transproation and development opportunities over the next twenty to thirty years.
