Letters to the editor
Dear Editor: The St. Charles Parish Library has grave concerns about the proposed path of the I-49 extension where it crosses Barton Avenue/Lakewood Avenue (LA 3060).
The route requires the annexation of approximately 30’ of property south of existing Hwy 90, which would impact the parking lot of the West Regional Library at 105 Lakewood Drive. We estimate that this would mean a loss of a minimum of 12 to 15 parking places in the lot, about a 25% decrease. The current number of parking spaces at this location is oftern insufficent, and an additional reduction would have significantly negative impact on the usefulness of the 25,000 sq. ft. facility.
We are asking the DOTD to revise the route to mitigate the impact on the parking lot o four building, or to compensate the Library for the loss of usefulness of the building resulting from the reduction of parking.
Citizens who wish to support the Library in this request may do so by writing Ms. Noel Ardoin, Enviromental Engineer Administrator, LA Department of Transportation and Development, P.O. Box 94245, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70804-9245 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org preferably no later than April 9,
