The Planning department was created in January 2008 to better serve the public by providing a full-time office, staffed with Tangipahoa Parish Government employees that are under the supervision of the Parish President. This office will address land use situations and subdivision regulations and verify compliance with the Subdivision Regulations and Comprehensive Land Use Plan. We will soon have a GIS system in place to provide updated mapping information.

Planning Commission and Meetings

The Tangipahoa Parish Planning Commission consists of 9 members appointed by the Council to serve one, five year term. The commissioners review proposed development within the jurisdiction of the parish and have authority for final decisions for the development. They meet once a month on the second Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm at the Clausen Building Conference Room on Club Deluxe Road.
