Residents of St. Charles Parish are getting an opportunity to help design their great parish in ways to make the best use of it for the betterment of its people.
The parish Parks and Recreation Department is holding open meetings in different areas of the parish to express ideas on how to develop public areas to provide space which residents can enjoy using for their enjoyment and betterment.
Such meetings have already been held this week for the Killona-Hahnville area.
Many more meetings will be held in other areas of the parish to develop a complete picture of how we can develop our parish to best serve our citizens.
We are fortunate to have such a wonderful parish to live in and develop into a place in which the open spaces can be used for diverse purposes.
No where do we know of places we can enjoy in so many ways for our benefit.
The open land and waterways invite all sorts of outdoor activities that can join with developments indoors that can make St. Charles an indoor-outdoor paradise. And this perfectly sets us up as a perfect area for our people to enjoy it.
In St. Charles we have square-miles of vacant land usable for many purposes in addition to waterways and wetlands that can serve many purposes.
And we have miles and miles of levees that were built to protect us from overflow by the world’s greatest river that are usable for many outdoor purposes such as walking, jogging and exercising that are kept in A-1 condition that benefit such purposes.
Getting parish residents together at such Parish Recreation meetings should have a tremendous effect on bringing them together to develop common purpose.
And that purpose would be to make St. Charles an even greater parish, indoors and outdoors.
Residents should keep tabs on the dates and times of the meetings and attend them when they can so St. Charles Parish can be developed in the manner that can best suit the needs of our residents.
