Project activities include installing energy-efficient light bulbs with Green Light New Orleans and smoke detectors with the New Orleans Fire Department; tree planting and landscaping with Hike for KaTREEna; and painting, bench-building and other activities inside the park with Rebuilding Together New Orleans.
"This Central City neighborhood has suffered from crime, violence, needless deaths, broken families and trauma," Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell said. "Residents welcome initiatives from the city to address crime and quality of life. Our partnership with them through NOLA For Life will be an important step in the right direction."
During the event, representatives from city and partner agencies will be available to share information about their activities.
NOLA For Life Day will conclude with a celebration featuring food and music from DJ Wild Wayne.
Launched in May 2012, NOLA For Life is part of Landrieu's murder-reduction strategy to tackle the city's historically high homicide rate.
