Environmental Assessments & Federal Litigation

The Housing Authority of New Orleans manages public housing in the New Orleans area. One housing project was the Magnolia, originally developed in 1941, and later renamed C.J. Peete. Following damages sustained from Hurricane Katrina, The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) authorized funding in 2007 for the demolition and redevelopment of the “Big Four” sites, including B.W. Cooper, C.J. Peete, Lafitte, and St. Bernard.
