Stopping Rainstorm Flooding in Our Own Back Yards

When Foundation for Louisiana's 2014 Environmental Sustainability working group met to develop a project focused on New Orleans' Claiborne Avenue Corridor, their first challenge was simply to decide what they meant by "sustainability." As Jeff Supak of Global Green USA's New Orleans office explains, participants brought different perspectives – some cultural, some neighborhood, some environmental, and some simply tired of repeated street flooding from New Orleans' typical "gullywasher" summer rainstorms.

Ambassadors for Safe Streets

The Livable Claiborne Community Ambassadors program is just what the name says: an opportunity for residents of the Claiborne Avenue corridor to engage with their neighbors on community issues. But it's equally valuable as a transportation safety program, since its focus is giving neighborhood residents a voice in making their neighborhood streets safer for biking and walking.
