- reviewing the experience, organization, and funding of existing corridor revitalization organizations in New Orleans
- creating an ecosystem framework for supporting corridors and assessing existing resources and gaps within the city ecosystem
- researching citywide programs in eleven other cities
- formulating the strategy and preparing the final strategy report.
