New Orleans Mayor Announces Over 100 Recovery Projects For City
Written by  {ga=staffwriters} // Wednesday, 18 August 2010 15:39 //

NEW ORLEANS, LA—Mayor Mitch Landrieu today announced over 100 capital recovery projects that his administration is committed to fully funding and getting done.

“With the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaching, it’s especially important that we stop thinking about rebuilding the city we were and start creating the city we want to become,” said Mayor Landrieu.  “This is a new day, a new time. These 100 projects are an integral part of our strategy for rebuilding a New Orleans better than before.”

Landrieu added, “You can take these projects to the bank.  We're moving full steam ahead."

The Landrieu committed projects, 138 in all, are at various phases in their project lifecycle and work on the project scopes will continue in the coming weeks.  Thirty-eight projects currently in construction are also part of the Landrieu administration commitment to be fully funded.   The projects cover a wide range of facilities, from recreation to health clinics to criminal justice facilities to major road overhauls.  

The committed projects list follows an intensive audit of 655 recovery projects by Cedric Grant, Deputy Mayor for Facilities, Infrastructure & Community Development.  During that review, Grant identified all the projects being considered, confirmed all available funding sources, and aligned projects to available funding.

Approximately $1.1 billion was available for the entire slate of 655 projects including funding from Disaster-Community Development Block Grant funds, FEMA, insurance proceeds, and bond issuances. But the projected cost for the 655 projects totaled more than $1.5 billion, which left a $300-400 million gap in funding.

Of the 655 projects, 273 were completed by the previous administration for approximately $367 million including projects such as building assessments, roof patches, and temporary lighting, thus leaving approximately $732 million in available funds for remaining projects.

In addition to the audit, Deputy Mayor Grant is working aggressively to streamline the project management functions of the capital program at City Hall-- downsizing the MWH contract, eliminating other outsourced contracts, and building capacity in house.  The administration also worked to improve information sharing between the City and its contractors.

“When we came in, it was clear that the recovery projects were not managed well and that the data we had was indiscernible,” said Grant. “Our charge going forward is to have realistic, clear goals and to execute them expeditiously.”

Additionally, Mayor Landrieu and Deputy Mayor Grant announced that the City is working with FEMA to produce a global settlement for criminal justice and public safety facilities including police and fire stations and other system-wide settlements for other facilities.  The settlement is similar to the lump-sum settlement for schools, and would provide additional revenue for existing and future projects.  It would also allow for more flexibility in creating the multi-purpose community facilities envisioned in the Mayor’s place-based development strategy.

“The idea of this global settlement is very innovative and will allow us to create anew rather than build back only what was,” said Mayor Landrieu. “In my view, recreation facilities are also a part of this public safety master plan settlement because they are going to be an integral part of our crime reduction plans.  What has been done with schools should be replicated with these facilities. It’s what makes sense.”

The Landrieu administration’s committed projects represent $600-700 million in new projects.  Any additional funds for future projects would come from FEMA settlements and approximately $145 million in authorized future bond sales.

In his first 108 days, Mayor Landrieu began to reform the NOPD, has reformed the city’s professional services contracting system, and identified and found solutions for a $67.5 million budget gap.

“We are finally moving forward on over 100 community priorities,” said Landrieu. “While we have progressed, we have a long way to go in restoring confidence and public trust.  We are going to set priorities, shoot straight with the people of this city, and get things done.”
