It is a beautiful town with a lot of historical charm. Sadly, many buildings are abandoned and not being renovated. Would like to see the leadership make more of an effort to revitalize the town. Kind and welcoming people. Beautiful views of the Mississippi River!

I've lived in Donaldsonville all my life. There are alot of things I would like to see changed, but the most important thing is a safe place/environment for the kids of Donaldsonville. I think there should be more for the kids to do here.
Quiet and Serene but friendly and fun! I have lived here for 14 years and enjoyed my childhood to adulthood. Good to make friends and spend time with family. I enjoy time in the yard or walking to my favorite store. Summer days are mostly hot and in the winter warm or cold.
