Welcome to the Audubon Riverside Neighborhood Association

THE CULTURAL HEART of Uptown New Orleans, Audubon Riverside is a friendly neighborhood found hugging the banks of the Mississippi River, encompassing a thriving stretch of Magazine Street between its bustling gateway at Jefferson Avenue and bucolic Audubon Park.  Its down-to-earth digs sitting side-by-side with haute couture and po-boys make a perfect balance in one of the city's most desirable neighborhoods.  This website serves as a virtual gathering place for ARNA's already tightly -knit denizens, but will only stay vibrant with your regular interaction.  

We'd love to hear from you, so participate in the forums, or email us at audubonriverside@gmail.com.

~The ARNA Board



The City Council will take public comment on proposed amendments to the Master Plan, this Thursday, December 14, 2017. In addition to map amendments, proposed text amendments include changes to the housing, historic preservation, land use, and open space (parks) chapters of the master plan. We have received the most comments on a package of amendments sponsored Cm. Williams on behalf of the Greater New Orleans Housing Alliance.  This amendment package seeks to change the future land use map designation for groups of properties from Mixed-Use Low-Density (MUL) to Mixed-Use Medium Density (MUM), with the purported purpose of furthering affordable housing goals through higher density development.  Citizens seem to be concerned about whether these changes will actually lead to affordable housing or if they will only increase density, commercial development and the strain on existing infrastructure, and potentially encourage demolition of historically significant structures. 

 Let us hear from you if you have an opinion on the proposed amendments! The Council formally received the CPC recommendations at the December 1, 2017 council meeting. The Council’s charter-mandated deadline for consideration is 45 days from receipt of the recommendation from the CPC, which would require a council vote by the January 11, 2018 meeting. The entire recommended text and maps and other information on proposed amendments can be found athttps://nola.gov/city-planning/mpamendments/.
