Bayou Black Repetitive Loss Area Analysis
In response to recent high water events in the Gibson/Bayou Black regions of the Parish and in conjunction with several infrastructure projects currently either under construction or in various stages of design and engineering, Parish President Gordon Dove together with Councilwoman Arlanda Williams have asked the Terrebonne Parish Department of Planning and Zoning to conduct a repetitive loss area analysis for the Bayou Black area in Gibson. The intent of the analysis is to understand the flooding issues in the area, and identify ways to help reduce future flooding. The best way to understand these issues is to speak to the residents in the area in addition to technical specialists.
The Terrebonne Parish Department of Planning and Zoning is holding an informational meeting on November 14, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm at the Devon Keller Memorial Center, located at 5575 Bayou Black Drive in Gibson. At the meeting, we will provide information regarding the methods we will use to conduct the analysis with residents. We will encourage residents to provide feedback on their flood history, their opinions on the causes of the flooding, and their ideas on potential projects to reduce damages. If you are a resident of the area interested in the analysis or in providing feedback for the analysis, please feel free to attend the meeting.
Call Tara Lambeth with any questions or concerns at 985-873-6567.
