North shore community meeting will address 2 controversial issues

MANDEVILLE, LA (WVUE) - A community meeting Thursday night in St. Tammany Parish will focus on a pair of controversial issues affecting the area.

First, residents will get an update on a proposed fracking site near Mandeville. Last week, the Parish Council approved hiring lawyers with zoning and oil and gas experience to vet the proposal.

Residents will also be updated on the progress of the Highway 190 widening project.

The meeting gets underway at 6 p.m. at Council chambers.
