The widely disseminated idea that a Big Four style “redevelopment” of the Iberville Housing Development is a done deal fails to account for why HANO and HRI attempted to impose a virtually identical scheme on the public housing neighborhood in 2005 but failed. If anything, in 2005, the position of the forces that wanted to destroy Iberville by way of mixed-income housing reform was stronger than today. Iberville was closed at the time. Its residents were scattered throughout the country. And HANO was under the control of the Bush Administration. Yet Iberville, the conventional public housing neighborhood, reopened despite the opposition of then Mayor Nagin, City Council and HRI.. Why?
Come to a public discussion putting the spotlight on the people’s fight back of 2005 that forced the Administration of George W. Bush to reopen and maintain the Iberville Housing Development. Learn how a grass roots coalition of Iberville residents and non-resident public housing supporters accomplished what most “experts” at the time thought impossible, the reopening of the Iberville Housing Development as a conventional public housing neighborhood. And get insights into what can be done to stop HANO’s new attack on Iberville.
