Watchdog Group Rips New Orleans Plan

The independent Bureau of Governmental Research finds the Unified New Orleans Plan "fails to deliver a cohesive, workable road map for recovery."

Rolled out just weeks ago, UNOP was supposed to tie together numerous earlier official and unofficial plans so that the city's recovery and rebuilding could at last proceed with clear strategies and priorities in place. Instead, "It offers a continuation of the indecisive and confusing approach that has characterized New Orleans' recovery for a year and a half," making "wish lists" instead of priorities.
