This Saturday, the New Orleans Citizen Participation Project (NOLACPP), a group that "aims to develop a model for a comprehensive, citywide civic engagement system," will be holding a breakfast conference at the Ashé Cultural Center to present their findings and gather feedback. It's the first event in what the group intends to be a three-month public comment period before the final draft of the model is set down in May.
In a statement, Kent Twitchell, president of the Committee for a Better New Orleans, which oversees the NOLACPP, said, "It's high time for the people of New Orleans to have a real voice in city government on the issues that impact them directly every day."
The breakfast starts at 8:30 a.m., and the meeting continues from 9 a.m.-noon. The Ashé Cultural Center is at 1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. To r.s.v.p. or get more information, call Breonne DeDecker at 267-4665.
