Is your neighborhood an "opportunity zone" in BioDistrict New Orleans? Meetings this week

The New Orleans BioDistrict is a massive, 1,500-acre site that stretches from the CBD to Carrollton Avenue, and it includes much of Mid-City and Gert Town.

The BioDistrict (also known as GNOBEDD - which we've covered at length) stands to impact the entire city, but it ties into Charity Hospital and Lower Mid-City specifically.  Both are inside the BioDistrict's mammoth, overly ambitious footprint.

We encourage you to attend a number of meetings this week on the BioDistrict - which are designed for public input.  Please bring your skepticism, and ask questions to ensure that citizen voices are heard regarding this major project:
