Broussard landowners can maximize the marketability of your available sites for business development by partnering with state and local resources to certify your site. When businesses search for the best location to anchor their business operations, it’s important to ensure that the land selected is development ready so that the construction process can begin as quickly as possible.
What is a Certified Site?
A Louisiana Economic Development Certified Site is a development-ready site that is granted a certification after undergoing an extensive and rigorous application and review process for the land selected. This includes a wide overview of questions, all designed to assess specific site details to ensure the land selected is suitable for development.
Louisiana Economic Development’s Certified Industrial Site Program focuses on land selected for industrial or manufacturing business operations. In order to qualify for this program, the site must have a minimum of 25 adjacent, unoccupied acres available for development.
Louisiana Economic Development Certified Business Site Program focuses on land selected for business parks, mixed use developments, or Planned Unit Developments (PUD). In order to qualify for this program, the site must have between 10 and 25 adjacent, unoccupied acres available for development.
The review process of these programs is administered by an independent, third-party engineering firm. Sites are 180-day development ready to ensure schedule of construction.
