Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENCROACHMENT: New Orleans Naval Air Station (LA) buffer
Government buys land near Navy runway where subdivision had been planned

Plaquemines Parish government and the Navy will purchase 201 acres just north of the Naval Air Station-Joint Reserve Base in Belle Chasse, essentially paying a combined $7 million to stop a residential subdivision near the end of one of the airbase’s most active runways.

The Trust for Public Land, a national nonprofit land conservation group, has acquired the site from the Pivach family in Plaquemines Parish, which planned a subdivision for 600 homes at the site off Barriere Road.

The Trust will convey it to the parish by March, giving Plaquemines residents “a tremendous park opportunity,” said Chris Deming, the project manager who worked on the transaction for the Trust for Public Land.
