Terrebonne Parish Vision 2030 Community Meetings Slated

HOUMA - As the planning team for the Terrebonne Parish Vision 2030 Comprehensive Plan begins its work, input from community residents is needed to make sure the plan is headed in the right direction. Residents are encouraged to share insights about their neighborhood’s assets and issues in eight meetings set for Summer 2011. The community workshops are taking place across the parish to find out what residents and business owners identify as the top priorities are for improvements in areas near them. These priorities will inform the planning team’s approach to neighborhoods and specific topics, such as infrastructure investments, housing policy, transportation, and parks. Residents are encouraged to attend the workshop that is most convenient to them to learn about recent population and infrastructure changes, and to share their thoughts on future priorities - especially as they relate to sustainability and resiliency for the parish. The Vision 2030 planning process is expected to take approximately 12 months, with two major rounds of community meetings throughout the parish. Once strategies are developed based on this summer’s meetings, those strategies will be brought back to citizens for review. The citizen input-infused comprehensive plan will then be utilized as a guiding force in future decisions made by Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government and the Terrebonne Parish Planning and Zoning Department, allowing development and zoning to flow in a manner aligned with the community’s needs and desires. Workshops include: Thursday, July 7:     Dularge Gym, 1330 Dr. Beatrous Road, Theriot Tuesday, July 12:   Chauvin Gym, 215 Angel Street, Chauvin Thursday, July 14:   Municipal Auditorium, 880 Verret Street, Houma Tuesday, July 19:  Bayou Black Gym, 3688 Southdown Mandalay Road, Houma Tuesday, July 26:   Schriever Gym, 102 Kelsi Drive, Schriever Thursday, July 28:   Montegut Gym, 107 Recreation Drive, Montegut Tuesday, August 2: East Houma Gym, 126 Boundary Road, Houma Thursday, August 4:Grand Caillou Gym, 106 Badou Drive, Dulac The Vision 2030 team held a communitywide workshop on May 16th in Houma and has steadily been receiving requests from residents to stay informed, with Facebook and email notification requests from nearly 300 people to date.
