THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - A plan to help Lafourche Parish expand, attract new residents and maintain a high quality of life is headed to the Parish Council.

The Daily Comet reports (https://bit.ly/1lr7d8S ) the council is expected to consider the parish’s resiliency plan at its April 8 meeting, following approval last month by the Planning and Zoning Commission.

The plan is required by state law to receive permits and grants from the Restore Act, which will provide restoration money from fines related to the 2010 BP oil spill.

The purpose of the plan is to lay out a strategy with realistic short-term and long-term goals for the parish to achieve.

A panel made up of Planning Commission employees and advisers compiled and analyzed public input and used that information to help shape the latest draft.
