Calling it a project that Valero Refining – New Orleans considered important to the community, the company donated an “up ramp” to New Sarpy’s pedestrian and bicycle path.
“Valero consulted with our community advisory panel members on a project they felt was important to our fenceline community and this is what they chose as this project,” Valero spokeswoman Taryn Rogers told the St. Charles Parish Council when the parish accepted the donation. “This project leads to the existing walking path in the community.”
Valero built the ramp.
Rogers said the project represents Valero’s continue value in its relationship with St. Charles Parish and its residents.
Parish President Larry Cochran thanked Valero for the donation, as well as did Councilwoman Traci Fletcher, who represents District VI, for “fillng a need that was just more than we could do on our end.”
