More about NORD Commission
In 2010, voters approved a City Council ordinance to reform NORD, through the creation of the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission, comprised of 13 community leaders appointed by the Mayor. It also provided for the formation of the NORD Foundation, a nonprofit organization to serve as a fundraising body. NORD Foundation’s generous board members represent many of the City’s leading businesses.
We’re re-building NORD into an organization to be proud of; it’s what our City deserves. Please come have fun with us!
