The Administration has informed me that the Cultural Resource Survey portion of the full application for the grant could not be completed in time to submit to the National Park Service before their deadline.
However, we have been granted an extension to next year to re-file the application.
This will allow all to continue to provide comments and suggestions to me at Jjdavis@stpgov.org Thank you

Above is the updated Phase 1 Construction design of the Lacombe Trace Trails and Nature Park
District 7 residents:
The Administration, with my support, after listening to your comments/concerns and reviewing all emails and text messages sent, has decided to make the proposed Lacombe Trace Trails and Nature Park only accessible via the Tammany Trace by foot or bike.
This park will be completely surrounded by a fence with only the two following gated visitor entrances from the Tammany Trace:
1. Where the old RR spur meets the Trace
2. Near the Lacombe Trailhead on the West side of the drawbridge
The Park will truly be a “passive” park with walking trails, a boardwalk, a single restroom (required by Louisiana State Parks) and interpretive kiosk. The Park’s hours of operation will concur with the Trace,
7:00 AM - 7:30 PM. All visitor gates will be secured at 7:30 PM.
Secure gate entrances from the existing boat launch parking area on Main St. Boat Launch will only be accessible by St. Tammany Parish maintenance crews, construction personnel and Trace Rangers.
Thank you for your input.
