St. Tammany Parish Land Use Regulatory OrdinanceNo. 523

Comprehensive Re-zoning

of the St. Tammany Parish Zoning Ordinance

why re draft the ordinance
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
expansion of districts
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
proposed residential districts
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
proposed commercial districts
Proposed Commercial Districts
  • Six NC-Neighborhood Commercial Districts
  • Three Medical Use Districts
  • Two Educational Use Districts
  • One Public Facilities District
  • Four Highway Commercial Districts
  • Three Industrial District
  • One Planned Business Campus
  • One Animal Training/Housing District
  • One Gaming District
  • 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
planned unit developments
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
  • PUD’s that do not develop in a timely fashion can result in substandard development
traditional neighborhood development
Traditional Neighborhood Development
  • In addition to PUD, the ordinance includes a process and standards for Traditional Neighborhood Developments
  • TND’s allow mixed use development at a human scale similar to the older cities and towns such as:
    • Charleston
