NEW ORLEANS – On Tuesday, Oct. 30, the Port of New Orleans will host an open house for their Inner Harbor Economic Revitalization Plan (PIER Plan). The announcement was made in a press release.

PIER Plan is a collaborative planning project with the City of New Orleans focused on future development of the Port's Inner Harbor and surrounding communities, funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

According to Port NOLA: The plan will:

  • Engage and gather input from all parties interested in and affected by Inner Harbor development.
  • Envision future development – with an emphasis on two catalyst sites – that maximizes economic development and job creation, and positions the area to attract future Port tenants and other opportunities.
  • Synthesize and communicate key information about opportunities for redevelopment on Port and City property surrounding the Inner Harbor.
  • Reinforce existing and build new partnerships to leverage resources to successfully address challenges of redevelopment, especially implementation and funding.

The purpose of the open house is to engage the community, developers, local organizations, industries, and current and potential tenants about the future of the Inner Harbor’s economy, infrastructure, and environment.

It takes place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Port NOLA's administration building (1350 Port of New Orleans Place). To RSVP for the event, contact Amelia Pellegrin at (504) 528-3301 or amelia.pellegrin@portnola.com.

Port NOLA will host another PIER Plan Visioning opportunity on Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Port NOLA table at the New Orleans Neighborhood Summit Resource Fair (UNO Student Center, 2000 Lakeshore Drive).
