            The City has been working in conjunction with South Central Planning and Development Commission and the Metropolitan Planning Organization for the development of a Master transportation Plan for the City of Thibodaux.  The proposed plan was submitted to the Thibodaux Planning & Zoning Commission at their February 9, 2005 meeting.  The commission approved the plan and is recommending that the City Council consider ratifying and designating the plan as the official Master Transportation Plan for the City of Thibodaux.
