Coordination and collaboration
Many important forces that shape the overall quality of life for people in Lafourche originate far beyond the geographic borders of city, parish, state, region, or nation. International and national economic forces and migration will drive the future of the local economy and demographics. National policy will affect everything from the health of local industry to resources available to local governments.
The Parish should continue to strengthen long-term coordination efforts with Thibodaux and towns in the Parish, and with state and federalagencies. Many of these agencies set policies that directly affect the quality of life for Lafourche residents. These policies also impact the ability of residents to access insurance, quality education, safe neighborhoods, and social services.
