The progress of the Summer Tree Apartments, located on 2nd Street, is currently at a standstill as their fate is undetermined.

The renovation project was intended to create housing for the homeless and homeless veterans.

“It looks like it’s going into bankruptcy,” said Mayor Lee Posey.

The City of Natchitoches is currently keeping an eye on the complex and determining what the possible outcomes may be for the city once bankruptcy is declared.

Posey said that the city is “concerned” for the property and would want to see it “put to good use for the community.”

  1. Ask yourself “Why does an out of state investor want to build a complex for homeless people in Natchitoches?” How many homeless do we have?

  2. Why was it’s not finish for the purposeit was supposed to be renovating in the first place for the homeless they are people to and they needs homes to.

  3. I love the concept, I think it is something that can happen however, monies need to be invested to make it happen. I’d love to talk with the current property owner.
