St. Tammany Parish is the fastest-growing parish in Louisiana and one of
the fastest growing communities in the nation.  According to the publication,
Louisiana Moving Forward, St. Tammany Parish is the 'economic engine driving regional recovery' for the New Orleans region and the State of Louisiana. 

Mandeville is on the North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain.  26 miles from the City of New Orleans and its southshore suburbs, transportation accessibility (U.S. Interstates 10, 12 and 59) low business costs, available labor, superior education and blue ribbon schools, a low crime rate, and first rate medical facilities contributed to the city being named one of the Relocate America Top 100 Places to and #1 Best City in the state to Raise Children by Bloomberg Business Week in 2013.
