Welcome to APA Louisiana

Our mission is to promote the practice of community and regional planning in Louisiana by enhancing the effectiveness of planners in impacting public policy. This mission will be carried out through:
Community Service - Provide informed and objective planning advice on issues that confront state and local government and build public and political support for responsible planning in Louisiana.
Member Services - Provide services to members to facilitate communications, networking and professional/citizen interchange.
Professionalism & Excellence - Promote excellence, professionalism and adherence to high ethical standards in the profession by offering programs and opportunities to build professional skills.

Harvey Flood Data

We are keenly aware from TV news, social media and conversations with friends and family that Hurricane Harvey brought "old testament" style flooding to Texas and southwest Louisina. Lynn Dupont, who serves as the principal planner and GIS coordinator at the New Orleans Regional Planning Commission, has shared several links to online GIS web maps and data portals which provide documentation of the damage. This may be of use to public sector planners in the Lake Charles region and to private-sector practicioners who find themselves involved in disaster recovery work.
