“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 1A 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.
“At Entergy, we pride ourselves on being more than just a utility, but a partner in helping create healthy, vibrant communities and opportunities right here at home,” said Perry Pertuit, Entergy Louisiana business and economic development manager. “Partnerships with our state, regional economic development groups like One Acadiana and many other organizations are helping us do just that. We are proud to have played a role in bringing yet another site to development ready status in Louisiana.”
