Gretna Comprehensive Plan Logo

The GRETNA COMPREHENSIVE PLAN is a guiding document for the City to think about the next 20-30 years. The Plan includes analysis and recommendations for everything – from land use decisions to infrastructure development. The Plan reflects extensive public participation for defining the future of our City. As the Plan’s community vision statement captures,

“Our vision for the City of Gretna is to build upon the City’s strong foundation of community, while respecting the past and embracing the future, to improve existing infrastructure, enhance commercial corridors, and promote walkable and bikeable neighborhoods. The new connections should link our parks, diverse communities, and commercial centers, as well as connect the City to the Region, making the City a more united whole that is a premiere place to live, work and raise a family.”

The Plan is supported through partnerships with the United States Department of Housing and Development, State of Louisiana Office of Community Development – Disaster Recovery Unit and the Jefferson Parish Department of Community Development.
