New Orleans residents displaced by Hurricane Katrina and living in the San Antonio area are asked to voice their opinions about rebuilding their hometown during an interactive teleconference on Saturday, Dec. 2, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

St. Mary’s University will serve as one of a half-dozen sites hosting the event in an interactive format. The San Antonio site is the AT&T Information and Technology Center on the St. Mary’s campus, located at 3141 Culebra.

Participants will be able to see, hear and respond or ask questions. The conference, called the Unified New Orleans Plan (UNOP) Community Conference, is hosted by New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and the New Orleans City Council. Another dozen sites nationwide are hosting Web casts of the meeting. The purpose of the Community Conference is to develop a list of priorities for planning and rebuilding the city that will reflect the will of the people who want to return to New Orleans.

Displaced residents interested in participating are asked to call toll-free 866-940-1095 or visit to register or for more information.
