After the Natchitoches Parish Tenth Judicial District Court dismissed a request for Writ of Mandamus applied for by Rowanoak Development on Oct. 8, the development company filed a complaint with the US District Court: Alexandria Division. (See Complaint Below)
The debate originates from the decision of the City of Natchitoches’ Planning and Zoning Commission to deny an application from Rowanoak for its proposed Glendale Subdivision on Saint Maurice Lane.
Rowanoak claims that the City’s rejection of the plat for their subdivision has caused irreversible and substantial economic harm and a measurable interference with investment-backed expectations. The company also claims the City has no discretion in deciding whether to approve the preliminary plat, which Rowanoak feels it’s entitled to.
Rowanoak is requesting that judgement be rendered in its favor, awarding the company all damages to which it is entitled.
