‘Envision Livingston’ Master Plan being presented again after six years

News

A master plan that was first put together in 2013 is now back in the spotlight to hopefully bring growth to Livingston Parish.

The Master Plan Review Committee will meet and reignite that plan from six years ago.

The master committee formed in May from District 7 representative Tracy Girlinghouse.

The committee was supposed to update old master plan from 2013 and look into parish wide drainage and sewer and zoning.

Zoning was in old plan and would cost about $225,000 to update. Money became an issue due to difficulty finding match grant funds.

The focus at meeting will be an economic corridor which is to look into zoning one and a half mile north and south of I-12.

The projected zoning is to improve infrastructure and attract industry and commercial business as a gateway to Livingston Parish and to bring more jobs to the area.

Officials also want to improve the tax base, because current taxes isn’t keeping up with the growth of the parish.

That meeting is set to get underway at 6 p.m. at the Livingston Parish Governmental Building.
