The article reports on the American Planning Association's (APA) New Orleans Planning Association Team's recommendations for rebuilding the city's planning infrastructure after Hurricane Katrina. The team was assembled at the requites of the City Planning Commission and the Louisiana APA chapter. The team visited New Orleans as the first step in an effort to bolster the city's overall planning function. Follow-up tasks could include visioning workshops, retreats and work on a citywide redevelopment plan. Members of the team are Fernando Costa, Richard Roths, Chandra Foreman, Robert Lurcott, Jane Brooks, Marla Nelson and Grover Mouton. The team called on the city to rebuild its planning staff. The team noted that the city's redevelopment program should develop a more inclusive and effective public involvement process.
