AUDUBON PARK MASTER PLAN WATCHDOG
Protecting further development of Green Space
Audubon Park is nearly 70% developed for commercial and recreational purposes. Park advocates appeared at four recent public Master Plan meetings asking for no further development of open green space in the park. The Audubon Commission has now approved the plan. While some initiatives are hailed, some are vague and threaten further development. PFA will continue to act as a watchdog from further development.
City Beautiful is the enhancement of public areas right where you live. It includes any public green space, whether a bus stop or street intersection. Show your love for a greener NOLA.
Parks for All recently presented a plan to connect Scout Island & Couterie Forest, the last naturally forested areas in City Park. The plan would seamlessly increase one's "in-nature" experience: the opportunity to experience a long shaded walk in a beautiful natural setting. The plan also calls for convenient access to the area.

PFA is developing an online report card to grade parks and open spaces of all sizes. Parks will be graded on different categories. This guide will assist us in our goal of a beautified and accessible park system.
PFA is working with Lake Ponchartrain advocates to
ensure future development plans include public input from surrounding neighborhoods. Development and passive open space for the public should be considered in final plans.
