The City of Natchitoches will hold a public hearing at 4:30 PM on MONDAY, MAY 23, 2016 at the Natchitoches Arts Center, 716 Second Street, Natchitoches, Louisiana. The purpose of the public hearing is to discuss the potential development of a mixed-use development at the former, ADM, Southern Cotton Oil Mill site, located at 110 Mill Street, Natchitoches, Louisiana. All interested persons are encouraged to attend this meeting.
I encourage you to make time to learn more about this–you will have a chance to hear from the Mayor about his thoughts on this project, but also you will likely hear from folks that do not want it. It is important for you to learn more and decide if you think it is worth pursuing–before someone else makes that decision for you!
I’ve provided very rough “sketch” of the project area(in purple) to help you visualize the scope.
Personally, I think the project has a great deal of potential, if planned correctly and with good public input.
