SBP 17-02 SOSB block party

59 new lots or  ‘Builder Bundles’ are now available at bargain rates in Arabi, Chalmette and Meraux for builders who want to invest in one of the fastest growing parishes in the region.  Interested builders must submit proposals to SBPG Public Works by June 19, 2018. A Pre-Proposal conference is set for June 5, 2018 at St Bernard Parish Council Chambers at 8201 W. Judge Perez Dr. Chalmette, LA 70043.

The Sold on St. Bernard program is breathing new life into the parish by offering quality homes, in re-imagined neighborhoods with new parks & amenities as well as new small businesses and cultural impacts such as expanded bike trails and other visionary projects. Since its inception nearly 4 years ago, dozens of beautiful, new single-family homes have been sold to people from across the region and St. Bernard has seen its real estate values grow at a higher rate than most surrounding parishes.

“The program is successful because of its cost-effectiveness and the high standards the builders must adhere to such as 10 foot ceilings, raised foundations and landscaping,” says Jason Stopa, Director of Community Development.

Bid packets can be found online at or St. Bernard Parish Government Department of Public Works located at 1125 E. St Bernard Hwy, Chalmette, LA 70043. The advertisement can be viewed online at:
