LED certifies new industrial site near Acadiana Regional Airport


There’s a new Louisiana Economic Development certified site in South Louisiana.

Late last week, Acadiana Regional Airport, One Acadiana, Iberia Industrial Development Foundation and CLECO announced the 170.28-acre site located at the Acadiana Regional Airport.

The Acadiana Regional Airport P4 Site is Acadiana’s 15th certified site and is the third certified site in Iberia Parish. As such, it meets the state’s priority to certify large tracts of land, known as Industrial Sites.

“Today’s certification at Acadiana Regional Airport is another indication that Iberia Parish is investing in the right infrastructure for growing businesses,” Iberia Parish President Larry Richard said in making the announcement. “We are proud of the great assets we have to offer and look forward to the jobs and business growth that can be created here.”

A Louisiana Economic Development Certified Site is a development-ready industrial site that has completed a rigorous review process by Louisiana Economic Development and an independent, third-party engineering firm. Specific site details, such as zoning restrictions, title work, environmental studies, soil analysis and surveys, are assessed for compliance and authenticity.

Iberia Parish Airport Authority, IDF, CLECO and 1A worked closely together to secure the certification. One Acadiana’s Site Development program is designed to increase the region’s portfolio of marketable, development-ready sites by working with landowners and economic development entities to certify land within the nine-parish region.
