  • 1. St. Tammany Parish Land Use Regulatory Ordinance No. 523 Comprehensive Re-zoningof the St. Tammany ParishZoning Ordinance

2. Why re-draft the Ordinance?

  • As zoning ordinances are amended over time, conflicts and inconsistencies develop
  • New development methods, concepts and technologies create/highlight shortcomings
  • Community standards and expectations change as the community grows
  • Legislative and judicial actions require review of processes and procedures

3. Expansion of Districts

  • The dramatic steps between land use districts often results in difficult decisions
  • Conditional uses were used to address these concerns
  • More districts can provide relief without requiring extensive public hearings for each use

4. Proposed Residential Districts

  • Four E-Estate Districts to preserve large parcel rural areas of the Parish
  • Six A-Single Family Districts to provide for suburban level development
  • Three A-Two Family/Multiple Family to provide density in appropriate areas

5. Proposed Commercial Districts

  • Six NC-Neighborhood Commercial Districts
  • Three Medical Use Districts
  • Two Educational Use Districts
  • One Public Facilities District
  • Four Highway Commercial Districts

Overlays

  • PUD Overlay replaces the PUD zoning classification to allow the reversion of the approval to the underlying zoning if the project does not develop in a timely fashion
  • Manufactured Housing Overlay permits the by-right use of manufactured housing in areas deemed appropriate for such use
  • MHO also prohibits the placement of manufactured housing in inappropriate locations
  • The Slidell Airport Overlay protects the airspace around the Slidell Airport
  • Municipal Interface Overlay allows some coordination and joint reviews between the Parish Government and participating municipalities
  • Planned Corridor Overlay maintains the PCO standards along Highway 21 and Gause Boulevard

12. Planned Unit Developments

  • Basic Procedure is adequate
  • Some additional standards are needed
  • Lack of adequate zoning is primary problem
  • Lack of procedural guidance has cause confusion and conflict
  • PUDs that do not develop in a timely fashion can result in substandard development

13. Traditional Neighborhood Development

  • In addition to PUD, the ordinance includes a process and standards for Traditional Neighborhood Developments
  • TNDs allow mixed use development at a human scale similar to the older cities and towns such as:
