Note to New Orleans: Get Involved.

The proposed design for a New Orleans medical complex is being directed from state offices, and is out of place from local planning principles, according to findings.

"New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu should demand significant changes in the design of a successor to Charity Hospital, consultant David Dixon told city officials in August. Dixon, of Goody Clancy & Associates in Boston, described the state's current plan as 'a suburban design that does not integrate the hospital with either downtown or the adjacent residential neighborhoods,' The Times-Picayune reported Aug. 13."
