St. Bernard Parish is a parish located southeast of New Orleans in the U.S. state of Louisiana. The parish seat is Chalmette, the largest city in the parish. As of 2000, its population was 67,229. It has been ranked the fastest-growing county (parish) in the United States from 2007 to 2008 by the U.S. Census Bureau, but it is only half as populated as it was in 2005. In 2009, because of evacuation and outmigration due to destruction by Hurricane Katrina, its population was estimated to be 33,439.
In the last few years, St. Bernard has started to see an increasing amount of rebuilding efforts including the opening of a new state-of-the-art hospital facility, new retail and commercial spaces as well as a renewal of housing options in the area.
