Plaquemines-St. Bernard Land Use and Transportation Visioning Plan
The St. Bernard and Plaquemines Parishes Land Use and Transportation Vision Plan was a planning effort to recommend logical and responsible redevelopment following the devastation of Hurricanes Rita and Katrina.
BKI coordinated the St. Bernard Parish portion of the plan, including organizing Advisory Committee Meetings, one public input session, and several presentations to the St. Bernard Parish Planning Commission and Parish Council. Technical analyses performed by BKI included a literature review of past planning documents; an analysis of existing conditions, including a comparison of pre- and post-Katrina demographic data; and a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) investigation of post-Katrina recovery data. These analyses, public/advisory committee sessions, and best practices techniques were the primary inputs into the Conceptual Land Use Plan and the Conceptual Major Thoroughfare Plan included in the St. Bernard final report document prepared by BKI.
