By November 23, 2021Advocacy

On November 18th, the Livingston Parish council introduced the Drainage Impact Ordinance for a brief discussion. Many spoke against the ordinance including finance staff for the parish about the administrative needs when ordinances like impact fees are imposed. The Drainage Impact Fee Ordinance was moved to the Ordinance Committee for more review.

Ordinance Committee
November 30th at 6 p.m.
20355 Government Boulevard

Members and stakeholders are encouraged to attend and provide feedback. The attached letter outlines NAHB/LHBA/HBA’s questions about the ordinance.

At this time, the ordinance committee is also discussing tax districts which is an alternative to impact fees and has been supported by developers in other areas.
