City OKs three developments, but new housing plan sees setback

City OKs three developments, but new housing plan sees setback

Opelousas officials have approved two commercial developments and a residential enterprise. Meanwhile, the progress for another proposed large home project scheduled south of the city has stalled due to over permit and utility connection fee disputes.

The Board of Aldermen passed a series of resolutions and ordinances that allow the city to annex land off the Interstate-49 service road for a Love’s Truck Stop, change the zoning requirements to build a McAllister’s Deli drive-through in a parking lot on Creswell Lane and construct a 240-unit apartment complex off East Laurent Street.

Still waiting for board approval, however ,is the 215-home development off Harry Guilbeau Road. Developers and the land owner for the $50 million project said they are agreeable to meeting with the city administration to hammer out a deal that allows the development to proceed.

Love’s Truck Stop

Brad Peck, who represented the truck stop construction plans at a meeting last week, said the facility will include four property tracts south of Our Savior’s Church.
