In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, floodwaters overtook the city of New Orleans, causing catastrophic property damage and taking the lives of hundreds of area residents. As the water receded and as rescue and relief drew to a close, New Orleanians faced their next challenge: recovering from one of America's worst urban disasters. In this talk, Robert Olshanksy, Professor and Associate Head of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, discussed his and co-author Laurie Johnson's recently published book "Clear as Mud: Planning for the Rebuilding of New Orleans" (APA Planners Press, 2010), which explores the dynamics of the complex and oftentimes contentious planning efforts to rebuild the historic city. His talk was hosted by the Program on Crisis Leadership at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, Harvard Kennedy School.
