The City of Slidell and Olde Towne Slidell Main Street are hosting two public meetings to discuss the Olde Towne Slidell Main Street Master Plan.

The first meeting will be held on Thursday, August 25, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Slidell Municipal Auditorium. Philip Walker, with the Walker Collaborative, will be leading this interactive public workshop, also known as a charrette. In past Olde Towne Master Plan public meetings, issues such as parking, streetscape projects, lighting, events, and connecting Olde Towne Slidell to Heritage Park were discussed.

The second meeting will be held on Monday, August 29, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the auditorium. Walker and the consultant team will present the concept plan for Olde Towne which will be based on input from the public workshop.

Walker was hired as a consultant by the City of Slidell to help design a master plan for Olde Towne. Walker was an integral part of designing master plans for cities such as Covington, La.; Fairhope, Al.; and Natchez, Ms.

“Olde Towne Slidell is the heart of our city and is great place to live, work and play. It’s important that the public attend this meeting and tell us their thoughts on how the City and Main Street can improve and make Olde Towne Slidell an even better place for our community,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “I encourage all the Olde Towne organizations, residents, business owners and members of the public to attend this important meeting.”

The Slidell Municipal Auditorium is located at 2056 Second Street in Olde Towne Slidell. The public is encouraged to attend both meetings.
