Here's the terrific presentation given to New Orleans City Council recently by UNO students and CSED's David Eber!
On Tuesday, CSED appeared before the New Orleans City Council Transportation Committee to improve bike and pedestrian access across the St. Claude Bridge. Dr. Earthea Nance and University of New Orleans students presented their project, "Connect the 9", on much-needed transportation alternatives on behalf of the St. Claude Bridge Safety and Access Committee (working in conjunction with the Lower 9 Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development).
Dr. Nance is a member of CSED's Board of Directors; David Eber, our Resiliency Coordinator, also spoke to the council. Great job everyone!
