President's Message



The work of ENONAC is done by committees in collaboration with ENONAC leadership, the City and other organizations focused on re-building Eastern New Orleans.
Commission Advisory Board
ENONAC is governed by an Executive Board comprised of eight residents of the  community.
Get involved with your community at these upcoming ENONAC meetings.

ENONAC carries out its mission through the following Committees and meetings of the ENONAC leadership with the City and other organizations responsible for recovering and rebuilding East New Orleans. Each committee has a Chairperson and Co-Chair and a minimum of 5 and up to 10 committee members, each of which are implementing tasks in the committee action plan.

  • Medical and Health Care Services - ENONAC members represent the health service consuming population of New Orleans East. The re-opening of the hospital and the addition of health and medical services is of the highest priority to residents. This committee is committed to work with the City Administration and other community organizations to support the reopening of the hospital and bridge the gap between the Administration and residents through effective communications and an assessment of community expectations and interest for service.
  • Economic Development - Despite the fact that 64,000 people live in New Orleans East- the 7th largest community in Louisiana in population- the area still lacks in basic retail, community services and economic investment. New Orleans East experienced significant job loss since Katrina, but is still the center of the City's industrial base, growing advanced manufacturing operations, logistics and technology employment at the NASA Michoud facility. Another major priority of ENONAC's Economic Development Committee is to galvanize community leadership around high impact community development projects, including Lincoln Beach Cultural District that will enhance the sustainability and quality of life of New Orleans East.
  • Housing, Land Use, and Zoning (HLUZ) -The Housing, Land Use, and Zoning Committee is to aid the community in managing the inevitable growth of Eastern New Orleans, and to assist residents in having a collective voice for communication with City Council, City Planning Commission and developers, to insure that building codes, zoning codes, land use regulations and design standards are enforced, while serving the goal of sustaining an increase of property values and preserving the quality of life of the New Orleans East Community.
  • Strategic Planning Committee - This committee is charged with developing a comprehensive plan for the projection of ENONAC's future. It includes long-range planning to assist the Commission in establishing priorities and to better serve the needs of the community. These plans should be flexible and practical and yet serve as a guide to implement, evaluate and make adjustments to the programs when necessary. These strategic plans must reflect the thoughts, feelings, ideas of the Committee blended with the Commission's purpose, mission and vision.
  • Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) - The Parks, Recreation and Open Space committee is dedicated to taking a leadership role in Eastern New Orleans by promoting the development of state of the art parks and encourage unmatched cultural, entertainment and recreational opportunities. PROS are serving as a conduit between the Governmental Agencies and the community confirming that the Visions and Goals of the City's Master Plan are fulfilled. We address the local needs by supporting a greater role in ensuring that open space, parkland and recreation opportunities effectively meet and serve the needs of the City's constituents, the citizens of Eastern New Orleans, and those who interact with the parks system.
  • Code Violation Committee - The vision of the Code Violations Committee (CVC) is to eliminate and/or minimize the negative impact that repeat code violations (other than blight) have on the quality of life of Eastern New Orleans residents.
  • Public Safety Committee - ENONAC Public Safety Committee provides advice to Eastern New Orleans residents, business owners and New Orleans Police Department regarding the views of the Eastern New Orleans Stakeholders on public safety priorities, budget issues, and the operation of the NOPD.
  • Blight & Beautification Committee - ENONAC Blight & Beautification Committee is dedicated to the identification and elimination of residential and commercial blight in New Orleans East, assisting ENONAC to serve our neighborhoods to improve their quality of life.
  • Education Committee - The Educational Committee of ENONAC primary focus is to assist in fostering collaboration and awareness of critical educational issues that impact the residence of Eastern New Orleans. The committee is composed of four to six members who currently live in Eastern New Orleans and are familiar with the nature and operation of schools. All members volunteer their time and talents to enable the community to effectively support the learning and social development opportunities of our youngest residents, our children.  The committee meets with the educational agencies to gather information including but not limited to educational programs but also location, size and scale of future school developments. These findings are presented to the Commissioners with recommendations for final action.
