Board approves Cooperative Agreement with LED for industrial development of approximately 700 acres on the Westside of England Airpark

The England Authority Board of Commissioners approved a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement with the State of Louisiana Department of Economic Development for the Industrial Site Certification of W1 at England Airpark.  W1 is the approximately 700 acres on the Westside of England Airpark slated for industrial development in the coming years.  The Site Certification Program is a new program started by LDED to help local communities assemble the important information necessary to attract industry to their community.  Working with LDED, England Airpark will fund 25% of the effort and LDED will fund 75%.  This will be a multi-month process that will build a future foundation for jobs for our community.
