New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve are developing a Commercial Services Strategy to assess the type and quality of services offered to park visitors and to consider possible future services like tours, bike or boat rentals, and transportation services. Public input from individuals, businesses, and nonprofit organizations is encouraged. The Commercial Services Strategy will include all Jean Lafitte sites (the Acadian Cultural Center in Lafayette, Prairie Acadian Cultural Center in Eunice, Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center in Thibodaux, Barataria Preserve in Marrero, Chalmette Battlefield/Chalmette National Cemetery in Chalmette, and French Quarter Visitor Center in New Orleans) and all New Orleans Jazz sites (the visitor centers at the Old U.S. Mint and at 916 North Peters Street in New Orleans).
Four open houses were held to discuss the Commercial Services Strategy. The National Park Service is reviewing input and ideas; the strategy is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
