This week on Behind The Lens, the planning commission of St. John the Baptist Parish voted to allow heavy industrial uses on a disputed plot on the parish’s rural West Bank after years of contentious debate.

Our guests this week are Lens reporters Nick Chrastil, Delaney Dryfoos and managing editor Katy Reckdahl.
