    I know Assumption was part of the combined statistical area. So is it now definitely part of the regular metropolitan statistical area?

    ^ Thanks for posting everything. That looks like a pretty good plan, especially the Nairn drive crossover.

    Yeah. They demolished the Forum Mall in Arlington and built a really nice office park. It'd be nice if that was possible here. Or something like @Highland.

    Northern EBR Parish Development

    The address will actually be in Jackson. 201 acres bought for development near Zachary Robert Daigle, the mixed-use developer who was behind the Village of River Ranch in Lafayette, has bought 201 acres near Zachary for $2.4 million for a new development called Templeton Ridge. The 200-acre development, approved by the Metro Council in April, will have more than 700 home lots and will be located near the intersection of U.S. 61 and La. 964, with entrances on both roads. Developer Prescott Bailey has previously told Daily Report construction of infrastructure and roads would likely not begin until early next year, with construction of the homes to follow by the end of next year. The community will be strictly residential, with a variety of sizes and price points for homes. They’re expected to start around 1,700 square feet and go up to to 3,000 square feet, Bailey says. The whole project will be built in multiple phases over the next eight years. https://www.businessreport.com/article/201-acres-bought-development-near-zachary

    Downtown Library Plans

    Downtown library design flaw to take 8 months, $1.9M to repair Repairing the under construction downtown River Center branch library—which has been on hold for months—will take an estimated eight months and cost some $1.9 million, according to documents provided to the city parish Wednesday by its contractor on the project, Buquet & LeBlanc. Work came to a standstill on the $19 million library in mid-April, when contractors noticed a faulty weld that had compromised the building’s signature cantilever overlooking North Boulevard’s Town Square. The problem was attributed to a design flaw, but engineers, architects and consultants studying the problem have been tight-lipped about the specific causes. Broome’s administration has said taxpayers will not be saddled with the cost overruns that will result from the construction delays and repair. https://www.businessreport.com/article/downtown-library-design-flaw-take-8-months-1-9-million-repair

    Yeah, I was just thinking maybe they should share building some of these new houses on pilings?

    Mid City

    Cannatella Grocery coming to Mid City CAITIE BURKES August 9, 2018 A popular Acadiana specialty grocery store is coming to Baton Rouge as its owners plan to open on Government Street next to Rocca Pizzeria. Cannatella Grocery, co-owned by brothers Grant and Brian Cannatella and their wives, has been around since 1923, when their Italian immigrant great-grandfather opened the original meat market, hardware store and lumber yard in Melville, a small town in St. Landry Parish. Known for its muffuletta, the grocery store has attracted visitors from throughout Acadiana over the years. The Baton Rouge location will not have an attached hardware store or lumber yard, however. https://www.businessreport.com/article/stolen-downtown-400-pound-bronze-human-statue
