Economic Development

Why anywhere else? St. Tammany is a multi-faceted, culturally rich, economically diverse, exceptional all-around place to live. Each community throughout embraces its own distinctiveness from one end of the Parish to the other, yet achieves harmonious connectivity with those around it.
The Parish is at the crossroads of three Interstates, with close proximity to a fourth. We are adjacent to major transportation waterways like the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico, with international and metropolitan airports just minutes away. Nationwide railway systems and closeness to two ports—deep water and shallow—gives St. Tammany a choice level of connectivity and geographic advantage, making the Parish’s connectedness competitive with any community in the country.
Our parish offers fertile ground for businesses and families to thrive. Every community within our Parish has its own distinctive identity, from the resort-like atmosphere of Mandeville, to the metro-rural Camellia City of Slidell, to the historic richness of Covington, the welcoming waterfront town of Madisonville, and the rural, agricultural and equestrian communities like Bush and Folsom.
