I recently had an email discussion with councilman Chris Loar about a number of things including the construction on LA Highway 42 in Prairieville. Here is a blurb from him regarding several projects:
Hwy 42 – Clearing and grubbing underway and making good progress; utilities relocation and sewer installation beginning. Then actual road construction likely will begin early next year.
Park Progress– Community center renovation and expansion to be completed by end of summer. Doubled in size and completely overhauled inside and out (was falling apart). Will be two rooms available for rent for birthday parties, events, etc. Later this year, fence to be moved back, with trailer and abandoned house to be torn down and parking lot and park expanded back there.
Recycling – Just a reminder that two of our three waste vendors now offer this option after working with us, and I’d encourage interested residents to investigate further.
After driving Hwy 42 multiple times everyday, it does seem like they are making quick progress on the sewer installation…although I was sad to see some of the big oaks get major trimming back or cut down altogether. Regarding the park, the current parking lot will likely be cut in half from the Hwy 42 project, so the parish bought the house and trailer on the other side of the fence to make way fro more parking and park expansion. This has been a long time coming – Chris deserves our hearty thanks for providing this park for our kids!
