AMITE—The Tangipahoa Parish Council’s recently-appointed special subdivision and development review committee has reached a consensus that may help the Parish end the temporary development moratorium adopted by the Parish Council earlier this year.

According to Committee Chairman David Vial, this group was tasked with addressing public concerns dealing with drainage, flooding, stormwater mitigation and detention, traffic, and land clearing. Vial said each of these issues has to be done with proper consideration given to the pressures for residential growth in the Parish, environmental standards, the diversity of housing needs, property values, and the general welfare of residents living within high growth areas.
