STATUS REPORT FOR PHASE 1A:
Project is approximately 85% complete.  Shoulder material has been placed on most roads where asphalt work has been completed.  All soil cement and 95% of drainage work is complete.  Due to weather, little progress has been made over past several months.  Some dress up work on roads that have been paved is taking place when weather permits and will continue.  Roads remaining to be completed with asphalt surfacing include Hidden Hills (approximately 1250 l.f.), Oscar Rivette and Meche roads (which are approximately 50% complete), Don Guilbeau, Begnaud, Chretien Point, Jessie Richard and Osage Trail Roads.   Due to weather, contractor has only been able to get 1-3 days of work in most weeks.  With good weather conditions, I estimate approximately 3-4 weeks to complete asphalt work, with shoulders and dress up work to follow.

The Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation has received a grant through the National Endowment for the Arts to study the viability of transforming the former St. Luke’s Hospital in Arnaudville into a French and cultural immersion campus and creative industries incubator as well as developing a cultural master plan for the town of Arnaudville as well as the surrounding region in both St. Landry and St. Martin parishes.
 
A residential and business community survey that measures St. Landry and St. Martin parishes’ support for a proposed Arnaudville French immersion school and cultural business incubator is now available for public input. The survey can be accessed on line at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/K9GNVFK or by printed copy at Arnaudville and Henderson town halls, and Henderson-Nina Water System office.
 
The final day for submission of survey is May 22.
