Iberville council approves moratorium on new developments in wake of recent flooding
The Iberville Parish Council voted Tuesday to approve a year-long pause on future subdivision developments on the east side of the parish.
The 12-month moratorium passed with a unanimous vote and comes after Iberville Parish saw heavy flooding in May. The parish government said it would take that time to reassess its drainage situation.
The moratorium, which blocks requests for any new subdivisions, would effect areas in the parish east of the Mississippi River and its unincorporated communities. The council also recommended that St. Gabriel, which is unaffected by the current order, implement similar temporary restrictions.
Ascension Parish is also proposing a similar moratorium. Councilmembers there are expected to hold a vote this Thursday.
