“Broadmoor Lives”: A New Orleans Neighborhood’s Battle To Recover from Hurricane Katrina (Sequel) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

On January 11th, 2006, residents of the Broadmoor neighborhood of New Orleans, which still bore the deep scars left over by Hurricane Katrina, were shocked by the headline in The Times-Picayune. Worse still, the newspaper had printed a composite map, drawn from the committee's report, which showed six green dots showing low lying areas that could be turned into parks and "greenspace." Broadmoor was covered by one of those green dots. Incensed at what they percieved as a betrayal by their own city authorities, Broadmoor residents who had return to salvage their flood-damaged homes began to consider the way to save their neighborhood from the bulldozers.

Their attempts immediately coalesced around the Broadmoor Improvement Association-a venerable neighborhood organization-and a decision to create their own strategy for recovery. A core group of residents-many of whom had by no means met none of whom had ever worked on a redevelopment plan and each other -would take the lead in coordinating the planning process for the still -scattered community.
