The St. Tammany Parish Development District (STPDD, or “The District”) is a political subdivision of the state of Louisiana created by the Legislature in 1992 to foster business development and advance sustainable commerce. STPDD leads economic development in St. Tammany, attracting and retaining employment opportunities in the area. We seek to improve parish residents’ quality of life by strengthening and supporting the business climate. Since 2002, the District has completed 23 bond projects totaling $1,123,485,000 and resulting in 1,793 new jobs.

No members of the board of commissioners shall serve for more than two successive three-year periods. Six members of the board of commissioners shall constitute a quorum. The members of the board of commissioners shall not receive per diem or be paid a salary for serving on the board. If a vacancy occurs, the vacancy shall be filled pursuant to the same process outlined in STPDD’s enabling legislation. Once the remainder of the term is filled, the commissioner would then be eligible to serve two successive terms of their own. Commissioners whose terms start 1/1/18, but serve less than a three-year term are eligible to serve two successive terms at the conclusion of their initial term.
