Mayor Nagin presented revisions to the rebuilding plan formulated by the Bring New Orleans Back Commission. He told residents at a town hall meeting that he endorsed a proposal which would allow all residents to reconstruct their homes in neighborhoods shattered by Hurricane Katrina, noting that some building would be at the risk of the homeowner. The citizens attending the meeting were often critical of the mayor and angry about the city’s responses to their needs.

The mayor’s advisory commission, formed after Katrina struck Aug. 29, 2005, recommended in January that some flooded neighborhoods be replaced with parks and that the city take a go-slow attitude in rebuilding low-lying areas. The report also recommended a host of other ideas, from revamping schools to consolidating some city offices. The wish-list of projects included new light-rail systems, new riverfront development and better flood protection. close
