You're better off building in St. George than Ascension Parish

If you can't go higher than ... 3 foot and your property's majority 4 foot low, it's not that you're going overvalue that property. Nobody's probably going to fool with it, which means nobody's going to want to buy it because you can't do anything with it," developer Frank Fudesco told parish officials at the April public hearing. "And if you can or you attempt to, there's so many unknowns of what it applies to, who it's going to apply to, what building it's going to apply to."
no one wants to buy low land? Really?

Article kinda sucks but I reread it. Looks like you can only add a few feet of dirt, you must dig out equal yardage of what you add, and you need 2 feet of freeboard over base flood. If you cant get 2 feet of freeboard within the dirt limits you're doing stilts

I think I like it alot, but it's very very late.

Better late than never. Good for AP. Other municipalities need to be doing more.

re: New Ascension Parish Building Requirements
Yea it is better late than never but it does not fix the existing problems.

The issue isnt a guy building a 1 acre dirt mountain in the middle of a 10000 acre low area. The problem is subdivisions damming off mini spillways. Digging a big arse hole to "offset" doesnt really do anything in that instance and that's where the real problem already exists.

Where my house is didnt get water on it before the ms river levee was built, and in 2016 we thought we might have to sandbag it. I think I'm at like 16 feet if I remember right. We were worried enough to start running everywhere with a transit and pulling up too maps. The bayou by my house cant get to Spanish lake anymore because Spanish lake elementary basically damned off the overflow.

Those only apply to families trying to develop their own land. The developers will just pay the right people under the table to get a “variance” and never have to meet any of that.

Itd be the first time our parish put any resistance at all on any developer.

Eta: and you're definitely right. The parish government doesnt like families holding on to old pieces of land. They arent taxed nearly as much per acre as an acre with 4 houses on it

Unfortunately, Doc is outmanned and outgunned at the moment, but the elections this year could change that, especially if Clint gets elected parish president.

re: New Ascension Parish Building Requirements
Retention ponds are usually dug first to make use of dirt. By the time development is complete those things have eroded and silted in and are not worth a damn.

The entire retention pond scheme is a joke.
