Livingston council adopts 'corridor' master plan

LIVINGSTON - The Livingston Parish Council has unanimously approved a master plan.

The 112-page plan calls for zoning along a corridor that includes Interstate 12 and U.S. 190, which the plan identifies as the optimum location for economic growth in the parish.

The plan, approved Thursday night, doesn't push zoning for rural areas where the concept has previously met resistance. Instead, it suggests allowing people in each ward to decide for themselves what they would like to do about zoning.

Preparation of the plan was funded through a $450,000 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Long-term Recovery Program.
