CCA will hold a community forum (via Zoom) on Thursday, October 21, 2021, 6:30 p.m. Due to the large amount of street repair work taking place in our area, we have invited representatives from RoadWork NOLA and Parks and Parkways to participate.

We will send out the Zoom invite the week of the meeting.

The representatives from RoadWork Nola would like us to forward to them, prior to the meeting, a compilation of questions and concerns we have about their work. Anyone who has a question, or would like to point out a problem, and have it included in our compilation should forward it to us at ccanola70118@gmail.com.

Questions can be asked at the meeting also, time permitting, however we would prefer to have our questions in a written document for future reference.Again, everyone in invited, please spread the word.

Got trash pick up? Use this form!

Friday’s meeting of the joint committee looking into the Sanitation Mess was lively indeed. And it will be continued next Tuesday (more on that shortly). We saw clearly that the contractors have no way of tracking who has/has not had trash picked up.

Joe G’s office has sent out this form, to help keep track of who has not had trash pickup since the storm. Please make use of it!

“Following today’s meeting, we would like to keep a running list of residents who have not yet received trash collection since Hurricane Ida. The intent is to collect and share this data daily with Sanitation, Richard’s, Metro, and Empire to reenforce the urgency of this issue. We would greatly appreciate it if you would share this form with your neighborhood residents. We will also be sharing this form on social media shortly. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions. Thank you.” https://forms.office.com/g/4g9aShDt9W

Change to At-large Candidates Zoom Call

We’re cancelling this previously-scheduled Zoom call, due to the after effects of Hurricane Ida: power outages (still), emotional exhaustion, settling in of those who evacuated, settling in and restocking for those who are only now getting back their power, and so on.

Instead, we strongly recommend attending the 25 Sept Zoom forum that Together Louisiana is setting up. As soon as I have the registration link, I’ll share it.

City Council At-Large Candidates, 15 Sept, 6:30 via Zoom

Carrollton-Riverbend NA and Carrollton United are putting together a Zoom meeting with the four At-Large candidates. We’re planning it for Wednesday 15 Sept. at 6:30 p.m.

It will NOT be a debate or a “forum”, but each candidate will have time to talk, and then to address issues that Betty Dimarco (CU co-facilitator) and I are gathering now, with input from neighbors. If you have topics you’d like raised, let us know here or via email (eleyda.crna@gmail.com).

The Zoom link is below; I’ll resend it a few days before the meeting.

Orleans Parish Prison Reform Coalition Zoom mtg: 9 Aug, 6 pm

This group is behind the “Help Not Handcuffs” program, and is getting good traction. Remember, in a few months we can elect a new sheriff; these folks are no it! Invitation to their 9 Aug Zoom meeting is below the email copied below.

Your dedication to creating a more just and free New Orleans is paying off! Because of your hard work:

  • Our fight for ‘Help Not Handcuffs’ is becoming a reality. OPPRC’s Executive Director, Sade Dumas, was appointed to the task force charged with creating the non-police response unit our City desperately needs.
  • City Council passed a measure pushing the City Planning Commission to further study the alternative retrofit plan instead of Phase III psychiatric jail expansion.
  • The City Council’s Criminal Justice Committee deferred voting on a resolution that would have potentially encouraged the City to soften its opposition to expanding the jail through the building of Phase III.

The fight’s not over yet, but your canvassing efforts, petitioning, and public comments are already changing the criminal legal system here in New Orleans. We hope to see you at our monthly meeting this Monday, August 9, at 6 p.m., where we’ll discuss our next steps in our fight to bring Help Not Handcuffs to our community as we work to stop Phase III psychiatric jail construction. This meeting is critical as we plan to organize around the August 24 City Planning Commission Meeting and share the following steps on the Orleans Sheriff Platform. Will you join us?
