On Tuesday, December 5th, we held our 53rd Annual North Delta Regional Planning & Development District Board of Directors Meeting. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend!

We want to express our sincere gratitude to our guest speaker, Dr. Eric Kalivoda. Dr. Kalivoda currently serves as Secretary for the Department of Transportation and Development. He has been instrumental in the development of multiple editions of Louisiana’s Statewide Transportation Plan, ranging from 1996 through the most current version adopted in 2015; this included Louisiana’s first Statewide Intermodal Transportation Plan, which was selected as one of six model plans for the nation under the federal Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act.

Also, we congratulate Mayor Staci Mitchell of West Monroe, this year’s Dr. G.D. Merrick-David Creed Service Award recipient! Mayor Mitchell always goes above and beyond her duties as the Executive Secretary for the North Delta Board of Directors.
