LDS Church Wins Zoning Approval For Louisiana Bishop's Storehouse

SLIDELL, LOUISIANA -- The LDS Church's effort to build a 15,000-square-foot Bishop's Storehouse outside of Slidell, Louisiana was finally successful after delays last month due to neighbors concerns over a re-zoning application. The Church secured rezoning and a building permit for a 15,398-square-foot facility located on 2.3 acres.

At the St. Tammany's Parish Zoning Commission meeting last month, action on the planned storehouse was delayed as the Church worked with neighbors to resolve their concerns over the zoning of the property. Neighbors were concerned that if the Church's plan to build the storehouse fell through, someone else could use the zoning for a more industrial use.

The New Orleans regional welfare agent, Joe Clark, met with the neighbors September 20th, and agreed that the property would be zoned "light industrial." But at the October 3rd Commission meeting, they discovered that "light industrial" won't permit a 15,000-square-foot building. The land was originally zoned "suburban agricultural."
