The Broussard Economic Development Corporation, St. Martin Economic Development Authority, One Acadiana and SLEMCO made the announcement Thursday regarding the 49.74-acre site in St. Martin Parish at the Spanish Trail Industrial Park, which is just west of La. 182 and south of Zoosiana.
“I want to commend the Broussard Economic Development Corporation and the great work they have done with local, regional and state partners to achieve the certification of the Spanish Trail Industrial Park Site here in Broussard,” said Broussard Mayor Ray Bourque. “This certification demonstrates that we have a strong commitment to growth, making us more competitive and marketable to industries and developers.”
The site is the 16th to gain certification in Acadiana and the first in St. Martin Parish, One Acadiana officials announced. The certification means it meets the state’s priority for large tracts of land, known as industrial sites.
Local and regional agencies worked together to secure the certification of this site. The Site Development program is designed to increase the region’s portfolio of marketable, development-ready sites by certifying land within the nine-parish region. This is achieved through partnership between Broussard Economic Development Center, One Acadiana, local economic development partners, Louisiana Economic Development and landowners.
