Tommy: Where's the best place to live?
Data indicates the West Bank of Jefferson Parish peaked in 2000 and is struggling with an aging population, low paying jobs and defections to Orleans Parish.
We spoke with Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts about a study the Council commissioned that shows West Jefferson has been struggling, but it’s not all doom and gloom.
“When you have facilities like the TPC, and you have the NOLA Motorsports track, those are attractions that are going to be regional attractions that bring people from all over. So if you never had a reason before to cross the bridge, to come over and see West Jefferson, those are draw cards that cause people to come out. And it helps change the general perception.”
