    State of Louisiana, Office of Facility Planning and Control Northshore Technical Community College St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana

    Northshore Technical Community College (NTCC) was formerly located at 1000 Canulette Road, Slidell, Louisiana 70458. The campus facility is owned by the State of Louisiana, Office of Facility Planning and Control (FP&C) and is not presently in use, having been made safe and secure after Hurricane Katrina. NTCC, the tenant of FP&C, has determined that their needs would best be served by moving this facility to a new location. With FP&C’s concurrence, NTCC proposes to relocate to a 12.6-acre site within a currently undeveloped 41-acre tract owned by St. Tammany Parish. The new NTCC campus would consist of a 22,800 square-foot, single story building housing the functions that were distributed among the various buildings of the former Slidell location. There also would be parking as required by St. Tammany Parish Code. No change in function is proposed. The new facility would be sited at 65726 Highway 434, Lacombe, Louisiana 70445. An additional 185-acre tract located across Highway 434 from the project area would be acquired by St. Tammany Parish to accommodate stormwater detention. Only the NTCC project budget is being funded by FEMA.
