Support Bayou Haven B&B's Zoning Change To Neighborhood Commercial, As An Event Venue

This petition made change with 1,005 supporters!

As a 4th generation Slidellian, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to create a beautiful, upscale establishment that showcases all the natural beauty & charm of the city and parish I grew up in. My husband and I have taken every precaution to ensure the preservation of our surrounding natural habitat, while developing our bed & breakfast.The outcome is a beautiful venue with pristine grounds that is inviting to locals and visitors alike, highlighting our incredible parish. We have created a breathtaking and serene environment for locals to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, and any number of events. Our relaxing atmosphere is perfect for business meetings & luncheons. And by partnering with our local Tourist and Convention Commission, we have had the opportunity to expose visitors from several countries to our parish.

Here's where we need your help. We will be applying for a new zoning change to Neighborhood Commercial (NC5), that will allow us to become a permanent event venue as well as a B&B. We have encountered a lot of resistance from the Bayou Liberty Association. Unfortunately, if we do not obtain our new zoning, we will be forced to cease operation and close our doors to business. One request: If you see the positive in what we have here, what we have to offer our area, and what we are seeking, please help by signing our petition. 

Please don't allow our city and parish to lose such a valuable asset.

We will be posting in our Facebook Event calendar, the dates and times of both Council and Zoning Commission meetings regarding our zoning change. Your attendance at any or all meetings would be greatly appreciated.

Local government to support these changes can be found through our parish council members & zoning board members at:
