As 2017 draws to a close, it’s time to make decisions while also taking the time to celebrate a year of hard work and collaboration. Residents, officials and other stakeholders are invited to come to the table one last time to have your voices heard as we evaluate each of the projects being considered on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at the Slidell Municipal Auditorium from 6 p.m. To 8 p.m. You will have a direct impact on what could be funded as a result of this initiative by coming out and making your voice heard and your preference known. Opportunities to select your favorite project(s) will be provided on-site at the last round of meetings, which also serves as a chance to celebrate everyone’s hard work with food, music, art and other staples of your parish’s diverse culture. (To arrange for transportation, call Rachelle at 504.517.5292.) Be a part of the selection process and the celebration. The selected projects will be announced early 2018. To keep informed, follow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (all at @LiveLaSafe). Visit LASAFE.la.gov. LA SAFE is managed by the Louisiana Office of Community Development’s Disaster Recovery Unit in partnership with the Foundation for Louisiana’s Coastal Resilience Leverage Fund.
