Due to the unforeseen impact on our community by COVID-19, the City-Parish and the MOVEBR Program Management Team has made several adjustments to ensure the safety of all parties involved. All in-person team meetings and public meetings have been suspended until further notice. However, project teams are communicating virtually and coordinating remotely to ensure the program is performing on schedule. As it relates to potential upcoming public meetings, the MOVEBR program will disseminate information with instructions on how engagement will be conducted with interested consultant teams, which at this time is anticipated to be performed remotely for upcoming project selections. RFQ packages are anticipated to further detail how the Engineering Selection & Survey Board will execute its process. Additionally, information will be provided to the public as to how they can engage with specific projects in and/or near their respective neighborhoods and/or businesses.
