LAFAYETTE, La.-St. Landry Parish Economic Development (SLED), One Acadiana, and Entergy announced Friday that a 109.97-acre site located in St. Landry Parish has been certified under the Louisiana Economic Development (LED) Certified Sites program. The Daly Farms Site is Acadiana's 18th certified site and is the fourth certified site in St. Landry Parish, bringing the regional total of certified acres to 2,132. As a certified site, it has completed the state's rigorous review process for industrial property, certifying the site as development-ready.
Working with partners across the region, One Acadiana's site development efforts respond to the needs of site selectors and relocating businesses. Establishing a landing pad for businesses is crucial to attracting jobs and investment to the Acadiana Region.
"Acadiana's economic competitiveness continues to grow as we work with partners in all nine parishes to build a portfolio of sites," said Steven Hebert, President & CEO, Billeaud Companies, and Board Chair of One Acadiana. "Businesses moving to Acadiana now have 18 certified sites to select from, and Daly Farms is a great addition to the selection."
Bill Rodier, Executive Director, SLED said, "We are very excited about the completion of this fourth certified site in St Landry. We have no doubt that all these sites will soon pay big dividends in bringing new industry and jobs to our area. We are very fortunate to have entities such as One Acadiana and Entergy as partners in this process and look forward to many more site announcements in the future."
SLED, Entergy, and One Acadiana worked together closely 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.
