Parish spends $32Gs for park but canít say when workers will build it
On Aug. 9, residents thought the issue had finally been put to rest after the parish acquired a 2-acre parcel on J.B. Green Road from L.J. Frickey.
The idea for the park is nothing new, and, in fact, dates back to the spring of 2001.
From the outset, the intiative has been steeped in controversy, with residents arguing the pros and cons of building a park in an area that has a reputation for crime.
On Jan. 10, 2005 an ordinance to approve ďthe act of saleĒ was adopted by the parish council, 6-2, with Desmond Hilaire and ĎRamí Ramchandran voting against it.
The question now is, when will construction start - and when will the park be ready?
Officials contacted by the Herald-Guide couldnít answer on short notice, saying even ďa guess-ti-mateĒ or ďballpark timelineĒ wasnít appropriate.
