Delcambre Represented at 2014 NACo Conference and Exposition
The National Association of Counties (NACo) holds its annual conference in July, and this year New Orleans was proud to have been selected as its official host city. For those unfamiliar with the organization, NACo helps promote public policies, fosters county solutions and innovation, promotes intergovernmental and public-private collaboration, and provides value-added services to local communities. NACo has encouraged counties across the country to actively promote county government programs and services and help raise public awareness and understanding about the roles and responsibilities of county government.
As people depend on their local communities to provide services that build, maintain and protect their homes, schools and neighborhoods, NACo assists in supporting this mission by providing county leaders and staff with an opportunity to vote on its policies related to federal legislation and regulation, network with colleagues, learn about innovative county programs, find out about issues impacting counties across the country, and view products and services from participating companies and exhibitors.
This year, Delcambre’s own Tammy Gordon, Twin Parish Port Commission, Community Relations Director, is representing the Delcambre community to promote Delcambre Direct Seafood, Vermilion Bay Sweet and the Port's redevelopment projects. Furthermore, during this year’s conference, Vermilion Bay Shrimp will be served to attendees and exhibitors alike, with the intent to promote the brand and bring more recognition to our wonderful community. The successes of the Port’s redevelopment projects and seafood industry are in large part due to marketing and promotional events, so attending conferences such as NACo are an important benefit to our community. We are appreciative of Tammy’s work with the Port and would like to thank her for her contribution to this year’s NACo event and wish her success in disseminating information about our local community and seafood industry.
Below is a list of planned, ongoing or completed economic development projects in the communities of Delcambre and Erath, Louisiana:

Development for the Future
New Concepts Were Introduced. Shortly after Hurricane Rita delivered a 7 to 8 foot tidal surge that inundated the region with flood water, the communities of Delcambre and Erath began the planning process to rebuild. The planning process as it relates to Delcambre focused on the unrealized potential of the waterfront assets along the Delcambre Canal and focused on the marketing possibilities of the Delcambre community. Below is an outline of the architectural concepts and the marketing analysis that is guiding the redevelopment of Delcambre. A New Architectural Design Was Explored.
