Public Meetings on Industrial Zoning Districts Framework Report

Jefferson Parish, with the assistance of Camiros, a planning and zoning consulting firm, has undertaken a study of the Parish’s industrial zoning districts. This project offers an opportunity to comprehensively evaluate the current industrial district structure and associated regulations to create a set of new, modern districts and standards that work with existing industrial development patterns and implement adopted Parish industrial development policies. 

Phase 1 of this project began in the summer of 2021, and included discussions with staff regarding current issues, review of all relevant materials, a site visit, and meetings with stakeholders. This Phase has now concluded in a Framework Report that identifies key issues with current industrial zoning and presents a framework for zoning revisions, which will take place in Phase 2.

The Jefferson Parish Planning Department will hold two public meetings to solicit input on the Industrial Zoning District Framework Report as follows:  

  • Wednesday, February 16, 2022 from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at the Lafreniere Park Foundation Center, 3000 Downs Blvd, Metairie, LA 70003
  • Thursday, February 17, 2022 from 5 – 6:30 pm in the Council Chambers on the 2nd Floor of the General Government Building, located at 200 Derbigny St., Gretna, LA 70053

The Thursday, February 17th meeting will be streamed live on JPTV (Channel 6 on COX and Channel 99 on AT&T Uverse), Jefferson Parish Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/JeffersonParishGov and the Jefferson Parish website, http://www.jeffparish.tv/live.
