The New Isle

Map of The New Isle


After extensive research, evaluation and input from island residents, the Louisiana Land Trust, on behalf of the Louisiana Office of Community Development, purchased 515 acres of rural land near Schriever in Terrebonne Parish to serve as the site for the Resettlement community. The selected site, about 40 miles north of Isle de Jean Charles, is a higher, safer and more resilient location.

In November 2019, Isle de Jean Charles residents agreed to name the Resettlement community The New Isle. Today, resettlement team members continue to develop and refine a master plan for the community that includes features and needs expressed by island residents.
