Welcome to North Delta Regional Planning & Development District

North Delta Regional Planning & Development District was established 1972 to assist residents in our 11 parish region to enhance the quality of life and improve our community. We include many departments such as Planning, Area Agency on Aging, and Economic Development. We work with multiple programs, organizations, and government departments in order to achieve public community goals.

North Delta Regional Planning and Development covers 11 parishes in Northeast Louisiana with the primary goal in mind to better improve the region's growth, development, and quality of life for our residents. We promote public collaboration and partnership by providing better public resources such as transportation and improved land use concepts in a continuous effort to promote and progress Northeast Louisiana.

Our organization works on the planning and development of Jackson, Union, Morehouse, Caldwell, Richland, West and East Carroll, Madison, Tensas, Franklin, and Ouachita parishes, assisting local governments in carrying out local, regional, and state plans and recommendations, and program areas such as elderly assistance, the Northeast Louisiana Highway Safety Plan, and economic development.

With support and involvement from all members of our society, we can continue to improve the region for all.
