Metairie Road District

Metairie Road District, a new rebranding initiative in conjunction with Jefferson Parish, is proud to announce its 2018 Advisory Board. The Mission of the Metairie Road District is to seek to improve the lives of both Metairie Road businesses and surrounding residents by creating a cohesive cultural district reaching from Severn Avenue to the 17th Street Canal. The Metairie Road District strives to advance the area businesses and enhance community events for Metairie Road residents and visitors while embracing the community’s heritage and values.

“Our vision is for the community surrounding Metairie Road to be recognized as a cultural region that fosters a vibrant and welcoming experience for residents and visitors alike, contributing to the economic vitality and enrichment of the community and attracting more people to choose to live, work and stay in the district,” says Jefferson Parish Councilmember Jennifer Van Vrancken.

Over its long history, Metairie Road, from the 17th Street Canal to Severn Avenue, has grown into a thriving, 30-block-long business district offering visitors a range of experiences from shopping to dining, fitness, recreation, and more. The Metairie Road District, conceived through an historical lens, will be inspirational as well as educational. Expressed through signage, marketing, web presence, public relations, and social media, it will provide a focal point through which Metairie Road will be perceived as a unified destination for retail and lifestyle activities.

The Metairie Road Advisory Board, composed of area residents and business owners, will steer the directives and goals of the rebranding effort, which aims to position Metairie Road as a cohesive district with community events and promotion of its unique, locally-owned businesses. A primary goal of the group is to highlight the attributes of Metairie Road that make it such a wonderful place to live, work and play. Efforts have also been made to research the wants and needs of the general public. To participate in the conversation, please visit www.metairieroad.org to fill out a survey.
