Louisiana Economic Development (LED) recognized Broussard on Monday as the state’s newest Louisiana Development Ready Community. The Lafayette Parish municipality becomes the 47th participant in the community development program, now in its 13th year.
The Louisiana Development Ready Communities program helps participants prepare and become more competitive for new investments and jobs, according to an LED release. The program guides selected communities through the creation and implementation of a strategic plan. By following its plan for multiple years, participants leverage their assets and address their particular challenges to become more competitive in attracting growth to their communities.
