The St. Bernard Parish Comprehensive Plan is adopted!
Copies of the plan are available for review in the St. Bernard Parish Government Building and at the St. Bernard Parish Public Library or click here.
The Planning Commission adopted the plan at its August 4, 2014 Planning Commission meeting. The final plan is being prepared according to final direction from the Planning Commission.
Funding and services for the St. Bernard Parish Comprehensive Plan were provided by the Louisiana Office of Community Development – Disaster Recovery Unit, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Louisiana Recovery Authority (no longer in existence).
This is the website for the 2012 – 2013 St. Bernard Parish Comprehensive Plan update. This site is the primary location for you to learn about this project and how you can get involved. This plan is your plan! We want your input so that the final plan reflects your goals and is one that the people are firmly behind.
ATTEND COMMUNITY MEETINGS
A number of community meetings will be scheduled at key steps in the process as a means for broad public comment. The meetings will range from “roll-up-the-sleeves” workshops to smaller meetings, including “kitchen table conversations,” with members of the project team and the public. Locations will vary and meetings will be announced in the newspaper as well as on this website.
CONTINUE TO CHECK THE WEBSITE AND LOCAL NEWSPAPERS
This website will be maintained as a clearinghouse for the St. Bernard Parish Comprehensive Plan project information and work products. In addition, the site will host periodic surveys for residents to share their ideas. There will also be newsletter inserts included at key steps in the process.
