St. Tammany Parish to Hold Town Halls for Parishwide Drainage Plan

President Mike Cooper announces two public meetings for the St. Tammany Parish Comprehensive Drainage Plan, the first plan to assess stormwater runoff across the entirety of the Parish’s watershed basin.

“In all of our planning initiatives, the needs and opinions of our citizens are incredibly important,” said President Cooper. “This Plan assesses the Parish as a whole for the first time in our history. We are currently in the information gathering phase and I encourage all citizens to visit the website and attend the town hall meetings to participate in this phase so that we have a complete representation of our drainage issues.”

Meeting Information:
Thursday, November 10, 2022
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Parish Council Chambers
21490 Koop Drive, Mandeville

Wednesday, November 16, 2022
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Parish Council Chambers
Towers Building, 520 Old Spanish Trail, Slidell

Public meetings for the Comprehensive Drainage Plan are being held to gather and document citizens’ concerns for inclusion in the development of the plan. The Plan is focused on examining the existing state of drainage in St. Tammany and recommending capital projects and potential policy changes leading to reduced flood risks and increased public safety.

Additional public meetings will be held in January.
