Ideas imagined in City planning"
Demolished property exchange for safe areas
Neighborhood centers in the Old City for the benefit of those who transposed themselves to high ground to maintain a Oleanian cultural identity
Bullet train service, subsidised, for those relocating to the New City outlying on high ground, still working and part of New Orleans
If a block is rebuilt or built fresh, include storefront services, such as a cafe/lunchroom run by neighborhood residents or students, daycare in a protected inner courtyard, favorable terms or communal operation by residents, a K-3 or so public school, with the cafeteria serving as a community room during school closings and weekends, even a Sanctuary for Mosque, Synagogue, or church (owned by the community, leased for $1 to the school, fixed hours?), other small businesses on the ground floor, with steps up to the homes from the street, but a built-up inner courtyard or terrace for "ground-level" entry from inside for deliveries, handicapped, movers, etc.
Off-grid power and water, such as a protected, raised water tank, windmill (lowered in hurricane weather?), watermills, solar panels, dedicated cell phone tower, rented to City emergency services?
Our thoughts are with you all.
