Prohibited Parking and Partitioning of Neutral Ground on Parade Route

St. Bernard Parish President Louis Pomes reminds residents and businesses that the partitioning of neutral grounds will be prohibited for the St. Bernard Irish Italian Islenos Community Parade & Marching Club on Saturday, April 6, 2024. 

President Pomes stated there is a concern for public safety when ropes, tape, and stakes are placed on the neutral grounds leading up to parade day. 

Inspectors will be out monitoring the neutral grounds and emergency lanes.  Any obstructions will be removed. Obstructions on the neutral grounds including, but not limited to ropes, tents, scaffolds, and barricades are in violation of Section 11-20 of the Code of Ordinances. 

Vehicles parking along the right-of-way or too close to corners cause a safety hazard for those entering major thoroughfares. The St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office will be monitoring parking along the parade route for the safety of all residents.
