A moratorium policy is a government regulation that halts construction activity. Moratoriums should not be imposed in an effort to solve infrastructure-related problems. Sound infrastructure planning is not a short-term fix. It is a long-term process that requires diligence, commitment, and professionalism on the part of professional planners and elected leaders.
Parish councils in Ascension and Iberville parishes have introduced moratorium ordinances to halt construction activity, and East Baton Rouge parish introduced a discussion addressing a moratorium for neighborhoods. Read more about below.
