MANDEVILLE — Mayor Clay Madden issued an update concerning this event:
PRESS RELEASE (June 15, 2021):
I would like to take this time to clear up any confusion about the Traffic Summit next week. This meeting is hosted by me and the City of Mandeville for the benefit of the residents of Mandeville. If you live outside the Mandeville city limits, you are more than welcome to attend as this is a public meeting. However, this meeting has an agenda and ONLY the projects outlined below will be discussed. We will not be discussing, for example, Highway 1077, as that is not in Mandeville. So again, ONLY the projects below will be discussed. This meeting also has a beginning and end time. Panelists will speak first and then we will take questions. As the host, my job is to keep the meeting moving. Two years ago, this format worked fine. The goal of this meeting is to get all agencies in one room to better communicate project details. When elected officials attend meetings, they always bring business cards usually with their cell phones and email addresses. Therefore, if you have a question about a project not on the meeting agenda, my suggestion would be to get business cards and perform follow up questioning after the meeting. The additional benefit of this meeting, compared to the meeting two years ago, is it will be live streamed and recorded for viewing via the City of Mandeville’s Facebook page and city website.
