“Preservation Thru Incorporation”


The Neighbors in Action (NIA) is sponsoring this website. The NIA is a grassroots organization whose mission is to bring important issues to the communities of Livingston Parish. Some of the issues we have brought to the people are the BR Loop, the Tiger II HUD, the housing development south of Walker on Hwy. 447 and most recently the development of Watson Heights. We believe that incorporating Watson is an important issue that the people of Watson should consider.

Within this website you will get information that will help you understand the benefits of incorporating Watson into a city. You will find information about why we should create a city of Watson, how to create it, how to fund it, and an estimated budget to operate it.

This website also has a proposed boundary map for you to view and the petition for you to read before signing and when you are ready to sign, locations of signing sites.

When you click on WHY you can read our opinion about protecting our schools, maintaining community values, protecting property values, stopping the BR Loop and fighting crime.

We hope that all of your questions will be answered on this website but if you have any questions you can summit one and we will answer it to the best of our ability.

You can also find us on Facebook and via e-mail on our CONTACT link above.
