Louisiana Act 234

Primary tabs

Granted authority to police juries to regulate subdivisions and layouts of streets and parks. However, there was no requirement or mention of planning before deciding on regulations.

The police juries were granted a measure of planning authority in 1928. The statute does not provide for any separate planning agency or other administrative machinery but it does empower a police jury to legislate broadly with respect both to the laying out and modification of streets, parks and other public improvements and to the private platting and subdividing of land.

January, 1928
