President Jerry Speir writes:

Agenda for Board Meeting:  I am open to your suggestions for items for our Board agenda.  For the record, I have invited two outside presenters.  I will endeavor to keep both brief.  First, the neighborhood association representing the area for the proposed new LSU/VA hospitals has asked us (through Alice-Ann) for an opportunity to address us. Second, is a project in which I and Paul Baricos (of the Hollygrove CDC, whom many of you know) are involved as advisors; it is a project called How Safe, How Soon? and is sponsored by the Tulane Law School and Environmental Defense.  The basic idea is that levees and coastal restoration sufficient to really make New Orleans “safe” are decades away, at a minimum.  What, therefore, can individuals and neighborhoods do to make ourselves more resilient in the meantime?  The project has two young staff members, and the intent here is primarily to introduce them and the program.  We will also be discussing plans for our fall general membership meeting, the HUD “discrimination complaint” filed against us and the city as previously noted, the latest on Priestley School (some major new reports/decisions are expected in advance of our meeting)—and crime.  What else?
