HELP PLAN THE FUTURE OF BUCKTOWN HARBOR AND THE LAKEFRONT ! REVIEW INITIAL PLANNING CONCEPTS AND TAKE THE SURVEY !
SURVEY ENDS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH !
Bucktown has long been a focus of activity along Lake Pontchartrain. From fishing camps and speakeasies to its current incarnation as a center for boating, fishing and open space activity, Bucktown Harbor is an authentic, valued community asset. What's next for Bucktown's Harborfront? That's the question Jefferson Parish, design consultants, and the community-at-large are seeking to answer for this nearly 30 acre lakefront site. The goal of this effort is to assemble a plan for Bucktown Harbor that provides a compelling, community driven vision for the future. The Vision Plan will set the stage for follow-on funding source identification, detailed master planning and ultimate implementation of renewal efforts.
January Community Priorities Survey: The Results are In!
Public Work Session One, and its companion survey, brought forth tremendous public feedback: More than 100 community members attended the open house, with an additional 700 individuals completing the online survey! This information produced an amazing amount of data and guidance for use in crafting design alternatives for the Bucktown Harbor site. All survey results are available via download at the links at the end of this website. We have also separated the data by respondents that indicated “Bucktown” as the community in which they reside.
Preliminary Concepts for Bucktown Harbor
In the following section, we present two initial planning concepts. Concepts represent initial thoughts and ideas for Bucktown Harbor based on the Community Priorities Survey results and feedback from Public Open House One. Planning concepts were developed using the core tenets and framework established for the project area. They also take into account the planning team’s general sense of financial feasibility, ease of implementation, permissibility by regulatory agencies and community acceptance of project elements.
Please keep in mind that the planning concepts are preliminary and will evolve as the vision planning process advances over the coming weeks.
After you have reviewed the planning concepts, please complete the following survey questions to let us know how well you feel the options follow the established core tenets and project framework.
