A 38.45-acre site in Carencro has been certified under the Louisiana Economic Development Certified Sites program.
The site located at Cenac Park is Acadiana's 17th certified site and is the third certified site in Lafayette Parish, according to local economic development organization One Acadiana.
As a certified site, it has completed the state's review process for industrial property and is now considered development-ready.
Friday's announcement was made by the Lafayette Economic Development Authority (LEDA), One Acadiana (1A) and SLEMCO.
“1A is proud to work with our partners on the local, regional, and state level to certify sites in Acadiana,” said Troy Wayman, President and CEO of One Acadiana. “With this announcement, over 2,000 acres of land are certified in our nine parishes, providing a strong portfolio of shovel-ready sites to market to expanding businesses.”
One Acadiana says that LEDA, the city of Carencro, and SLEMCO worked closely with 1A's business development team to secure this site's certification.
One Acadiana's Site Development program is designed to increase the region's portfolio of marketable, development-ready sites by certifying land within Acadiana's nine-parishes. This is achieved through a partnership between One Acadiana, local economic development partners, Louisiana Economic Development, and landowners, they say.
“We’re grateful to all the parties involved in the certification of Cenac Park here in Carencro,” said Carencro Mayor Glenn Brasseaux. “We look forward to continued partnership with our local and regional economic developers to market Carencro and South Louisiana to the world.”
