Developer Looks To Expand Industrial Park In Ascension

GONZALES, LA (AP) — A New Roads land developer's plan to expand an Ascension Parish industrial park has hit some approval snags.

         The Advocate’s David J. Mitchell reports that L.J. Grezaffi is hoping to expand into the 345-acre interior of his Ascension Commerce Center, which has become home to industrial service businesses that line Louisiana Highway 30 and Louisiana Highway 73 near Gonzales.

         Last week, the industrial park ran into problems over traffic and drainage after the new phases faced possible denial by the Ascension Parish Planning Commission.

         The commission staff refused to recommend approval over the project's traffic and drainage plans, so it was deferred.

         Deric Murphy, an engineer who presented Grezaffi's project before the commission Thursday night, says backers hope to meet with parish staff, state highway officials and others to provide answers to the commissioners' questions.
