Your guide to successful development along the Lafitte Greenway
The Lafitte Greenway: Guide to Trail-Oriented Development provides a comprehensive set of planning and design principles for new development along the Lafitte Greenway. Community leadership and engagement have been at the center of the Greenway's development. The principles outlined in this report are built upon and codified in the following public documents:
- The City of New Orleans Master Plan for the 21st Century
- The Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO)
- The Lafitte Greenway Master Plan
- The Lafitte Corridor Revitalization Plan
Developers, city officials, and community members should use this guide in combination with the above public documents to ensure successful and responsible development that honors the community's vision and benefits the city as a whole.
Successful developments will not only stimulate focused reinvestments into the surrounding neighborhoods, but will also embrace the natural, cultural, and aesthetic qualities that already exist along the Greenway. By generating private investment that contributes to the public realm, the Greenway and its partners can continue to develop this vital and dynamic space and build a healthier, more resilient city.
