Plaquemine Parks To Receive A Face Lift

Parks are an important part of any community. They are a great way for residents to enjoy the outdoors and come together. Plaquemines Parish has received the distinguished state Community Achievement Award that is given by the Louisiana Municipal Association to proceed with the parish’s park renovations.

So far, improvements are being made currently to three Plaquemine parks Fort Area Park, North Plaquemine Park and Herman Graham. New restrooms are being built and will hopefully be done in time for the summer. The new restrooms will include a separate facility for men and women. This phase is much needed as the restroom at Herman Graham Park is permanently closed because it is falling apart.

The restroom project is a part of the ” continuation of improvements at all city parks initiated under Mayor Edwin “Ed” Reeves Jr. and the Board of Selectmen, which also included extensive upgrades at City Park in 2017.”

“We have made a significant investment in improving all our parks in the last three years in hopes that residents will get outdoors and enjoy these recreational facilities,” Mayor Reeves said.

The Mayor is excited and says the renovations will make the parks among the best in this region. North Plaquemine Park and Herman Graham Park will boast new playgrounds, new basketball courts, landscaping and walkways. Fort Area Park, that was purchased in 2018, now has a new playground, fencing and all the land has been leveled and cleared of scrub trees. The park also has a basketball and restroom building currently under construction.

“We also have obtained more than $1.1 million in grant funds to build a levee-top walking and biking trail on the Mississippi River levee but are still awaiting one final agency approval to begin work. We are ready and anxious to begin,” he said. Hopefully, we can go out for bid on the first phase of that project this summer.”

Three Things Not To Do When Obtaining A Mortgage

For potential home buyers taking out a mortgage can be a daunting experience. According to a mortgage survey taken by Freeandclear, 32% felt the mortgage process was overly complicated and stressful. Here are three mistakes to avoid when it comes to obtaining a mortgage.

Always shop around for a mortgage. Not shopping around for a mortgage is a big mistake. In fact, finding the right lender is a very important step in the homebuying process. Potential homebuyers can save thousands of dollars over the lifetime of their loan. Call several lenders and compare rates and fees by requesting quotes. These fees are negotiable so you should always compare at least three different quotes. Surprisingly around 50% of U.S. homebuyers do not comparison shop when it comes to mortgages.

Never skip the preapproval process. It is always a good idea to go into your home search with your eyes wide open to what you can afford. Sometimes what we think we can afford doesn’t sink with what the banks will lend us. Many homebuyers do not realize that your credit and income plays a big part when it comes to the purchase price. Getting pre-approved will help you get a better understanding of how much house you can afford. Showing a potential seller a pre-approval letter lets them know you are serious.

Thirdly, always familiarize yourself with the basic terms and the lending process. Shopping around for a mortgage can be less stressful if you understand terms such as FHA loans, ARMs, and fixed rates. If you are better equipped, you will be able to choose the best option and specific loan that fits your financial situation.

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest decisions we will make in our lifetime. The more information you know, the better decision you will make.
