LAPLACE — Throughout the past year, St. John the Baptist Parish residents met to discuss and vote on proposed projects to protect the community from future land loss and coastal flood risk.

Developed through Louisiana’s Strategic Adaptations for Future Environments in coordination with the Office of Community Development and the Foundation for Louisiana, the selected St. John Parish project encompasses storm drainage management and beautification efforts on Airline Highway and Main Street in LaPlace.

The proposal would add bio-retention cells to hold and filter run-off, pedestrian and cyclist paths, permeable parking, a green median, shade trees, native plantings, historic light poles and banners to a 1.3-mile stretch on Airline Highway and a 0.3-mile area on Main Street.
