About the Madison Port Commission
The Madison Parish Port Commission was created by Act 369 of the 1966 Session of Louisiana Legislature as the governing authority of the Madison Parish Port Harbor and Terminal District. The board of commissioners consist of seven members who serve four-year staggered terms; six appointed by the Madison Parish Police Jury, and one elected the six appointed members. Commissioners serve without compensation. Regular meetings are held monthly on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 5:00 p.m. The primary object and purpose of the Madison Parish Port Commission is to fully develop the 266 acre port and industrial site along the Mississippi River to stimulate and encourage economic development in Madison Parish, Louisiana through commerce, industry and tourism and for the utilization and development of natural and human resources of the area and provide job opportunities. The proposed development was envisioned to be a fully operational port and industrial park with roads, railroads, water, sewer, natural gas, and electrical infrastructure.
