New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward is ready for recovery, according to a new report released this weekend. The structures in the flood-damaged neighborhood are structurally sound, the study says.
The planning team delivered a 170-page report titled "A Peoples' Plan for Overcoming the Hurricane Katrina Blues," with a five-year outline and statistics derived from a door-to-door survey of residents last fall. ...
The group said that even though only a small fraction of Lower 9th Ward residents are living in their old neighborhood, nearly 80 percent are in the process of cleaning, gutting or renovating their homes.
It's can be hard to be optimistic about the Ninth Ward's recovery. But this sounds like good news.
