For Immediate Release
St. Tammany Parish Recreation District No. 16 will hold a public meeting later this month to unveil the results of a strategic plan generated by its consultants.
On Aug. 28 at 6 p.m., Fauntleroy Latham Weldon Barre’ Architects will unveil the master plan created for the District at Slidell City Hall. Recreation District 16 encompasses the 8th and 9th Wards of St. Tammany, a large area surrounding the city of Slidell. Earlier this year, the District engaged consultants to determine the recreation needs of the community service area and propose a scope of needs for a park the District hopes to develop in the area.
“We had great citizen input at earlier community meetings, and we’re excited to unveil the results of this study,” said Sharon Hewitt, chair of the RD16 Board of Commissioners. “I hope we will have great attendance at the Aug. 28 meeting. It is vital to have community support for this undertaking. Because we anticipate a positive response and growing community involvement, we’ve moved our monthly meeting to the Slidell City Council Chambers to accommodate more people – a development we absolutely welcome.”
The Master Plan presentation will be first on the agenda.Read More
