I’ve lived here my whole life and been involved in community service for more than half of it. This city is getting smaller by the decade, but stronger by the decade. Many reasons to live here.

I have lived in Plaquemine my whole life. What I love best about Plaquemne is that things are juat the right pace. There's a small crime rate, has a cozy small time feel despite its size, and the people are polite. The education I recieved was not only great and well funded but also very diverse. While the chemical plants that surround the area can be a problem healthwise, its certanly a great quiet place to live and raise a family.
Need more job opportunities. Businesses start up there but they do not last a long time. There is no growth in this town. Everyone is moving away to the surrounding areas.
