The City of Mandeville is proud to announce that the Port Marigny Project has been settled and the City is looking forward to a beautiful development enhancing our lakefront landscape.
The Port Marigny permit was originally filed in our Planning Department in 2015 and went through two years of public meetings with our Planning and Zoning Commission prior to being recommended to the City Council. After many meetings, the City Council identified areas of concern that the owners addressed, and the project was returned to Planning and Zoning for review and recommendation; however, the City Council eventually voted the project down. It then ended up in federal litigation for two more years. Recently, the City Council passed an ordinance to provide mixed uses for property at lower density levels. The City was then able to negotiate a settlement that will provide a future development that will deliver appealing architecture and a lifestyle for which our citizens can be proud.
The City of Mandeville was also recently recognized at a St. Tammany Parish Council Meeting for garnering several awards, including “One of the Top 100 Places to Live” by Relocate America, “Tree City USA” by The Arbor Foundation, “Safest City in the State” by SafeHome.org, “One of the Best Places to Retire” by Niche and “Best Place to Escape in Louisiana” by Expedia. According to Expedia, “Louisiana is made for slowing down life to a drawl. Located on the placid shores of Lake Pontchartrain, Mandeville is the right setting for sailing off into the sunset.” We are blessed to live in a city filled with history and resources that can be enjoyed by all.
