Parish Holds Meetings for Public Opinion on Blueways Project

riverSt. Tammany Parish residents are invited to take part in a community discussion on July 13th in the Covington Council Chambers and on July 16th at Christwood Retirement Center, both meetings begin at 6 pm, to offer input on the development of a blueways trail system in our parish. St. Tammany Parish Government, in partnership with the Louisiana Land Trust (LTI), the City of Covington, and the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program (RTCA), have been working on a proposed Three Rivers Paddling Trail.  The project area includes the vicinity where the Tchefuncte, Bogue Falaya, and Abita Rivers converge. The overall goal of the project is to develop a blueway, or water trail, that is enhanced with launching points, signage and areas of interest for kayakers, canoeists, and paddle boarders as well as providing environmental conservation to the area.
