    “With little fanfare, and with public comment
    only allowed over the Thanksgiving weekend, the New Orleans City
    Planning Commission completed work on a new comprehensive zoning
    ordinance.”

    This quote includes two false statements. City Planning did not allow public comments ONLY during Thanksgiving weekend. The public comment period was open for over two months, before it closed on the last day in November.

    Also, City Planning Commission has not COMPLETED its work on the CZO. They finished this round of public input. Now they will revise the CZO based on the input they have received and release a new draft early next year. The City Planning Commission will hold two public meeting on this draft before making a recommendation to City Council who will make the final decision on the new CZO.
