Based on the summary of the LRA's Planning principles, the rebuilding of New Orleans might have a bright future if the conferences recommendations are used a a guide. I do have one reservation though. Goal number five here strikes me as a precurser to a planned community where residents will be forced to live according to a template created by others. This is not what makes communities great. Greatness comes where communities grow organically as a result of thousands of individuals making thousands of decisions. This is what made New Orleans once great and will make it great once more.
