Much of the fence surrounding the former Naval Support Activity New Orleans is coming down three years after the installation closed, in an effort to open up the Federal City project to the public and create a new entry point to the site for vehicles. The public has had access to the project since the Navy shuttered the support activity, but the Algiers Development District, which is responsible for the 114-acre redevelopment, wanted to remove the fencing to give it a more inviting appearance, reported the Times-Picayune. Workers will remove 1,500 linear feet of heavy-duty chain link fencing. Workers previously had removed about 1,300 linear feet surrounding a tract purchased by Delgado Community College; some of that fencing will be used to separate the community college from military housing still inside Federal City.
