Another neighborhood: Gentilly Woods

Gentilly Woods is just south of Pontchartrain Park, which we completed mapping yesterday. Both neighborhoods have joined together to form "Pontilly," and I attended their neighborhood association meeting last Saturday with six Dartmouth students.

A few hours ago I met Jackie, a Pontilly resident who saw my informal presentation of the project. I walked around the block with her to color code a block in Gentilly Woods. Bob, another alum of Tuck's Executive Program, arrived yesterday and joined us too. It was quick work, and Jackie wanted to do another block so we did.

Yesterday afternoon, we all thought that Gentilly Woods would be finished by end of day Thursday. Instead, we'll be done today. We're picking up speed as our system of coding becomes more efficient and more volunteers trickle in.
