Jean Lafitte Plan Unanimously Adopted

The Jean Lafitte Tomorrow Town Resilience Plan was adopted unanimously by the Jean Lafitte town council Wednesday. Mayor Kerner noted that the plan has already played a key role in getting Jean Lafitte's levee proposal added to the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority's 2012 Coastal Master Plan. Additionally, the plan has helped secure funding for a Nature Center and has informed the design of Rosethorn Park and a new vacation cabin neighborhood on the California Co Canal which is now under construction. The plan furthers the discussion in the town (and in the state) on "water in place" water management strategies and use of more multi-modal approaches when investing in transportation.
