There is limited acreage suitable for building in southern Louisiana. It is estimated that only 8% of the land in Terrebonne Parish is of adequate elevation & soil suitability to allow normal residential & commercial building & development. When the HNC was built over 40 years ago, 150 acres were raised with fill dirt & remain 4 to 13 feet above sea level & are dedicated for development by the HNC R/W Agreement. An 80 acre tract along the HNC with 4000 of existing waterfront & a dedicated 80 access R/W have been subdivided from the 1,022 acre property to facilitate development. The subdivided tract has already received conceptual & preliminary approval for a 190 acre lot waterfront recreational home site development from the Houma-Terrebonne regional Planning Commission. There is also over 13,800 of accessible existing industrial mooring area with dock sites on the property. The property also has approximately 400 acres of Fastland with private pumps, levees and roads.

Palmetto Point is an ideal candidate for various types of coastal mitigation & has been identified by the State & other agencies for this use. The 1,022 acre property has hundreds of acres of woodlands, prairie & agricultural land available for preservation, enhancement & restoration mitigation: without affecting the developmental potential of the 150 acre elevated waterfront site along the HNC.
