The New Orleans Juvenile Justice Center was the recipient of the prestigious Phoenix Award at last week's National Brownfields Conference. The award recognizes exemplary brownfield redevelopment and revitalization. Brownfields funding, along with several other funding sources, was used to redevelop this property after it was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Congratulations New Orleans!
