I heard it was supposed to be where the old La. 1 ended. Thats all the info ive heard about it.
thats kinda my point its like no info has been put out there.
as far as i know its at the base of the old bridge at the end of the road but you know how these things are, what you hear isnt always what you get so it sure would be nice to see an image and have time to voice concerns (if any) before its built.
I just did a computer search on the proposed new launch and here's all I can find:
It's a 2012 article but it appears 'red tape' has stalled it.
there was a small article january 15th 2013 here: http://www.tlgnewspaper.com/article.php?article=1009
it was a parish council meeting saying the funding was all resolved and in place and i ''thought'' it meant they also got past all the red tape and just needed to put the project out to bidding and start the project but i heard nothing about a contract being awarded or project starting and completion dates or anything.
AFAIK with EVERY project there is a rendering or scale model of what the project is supposed to look like yet with this project i have never seen or heard about anything like that being shown to the public or anyone else for this project so i must wonder if they even HAVE a plan or will they just leave it up to the contractor to design and build something and hope it turns out nice.
There is a video on youtube of a powerpoint presentation of the proposed launch. Just google 'leeville launch video' and you will see it. Good luck!! Tom
@ popincork - thanks but do you have a link to that video? all i found on youtube was stuff about leeville LAKE in virginia, nothing about the launch here in louisiana
I have problems with links, especially youtube. Hope this works for you.
that was a terible video and sound, musta been done on a cell phone or something lol
at least it gives you some sort of look at the plans.
i just cant see why they didnt put a picture of it in the paper, after all it IS the biggest thing going on down there since the new highway yet they say nothing about it like its not even a story.
its a shame they dont do a better job reporting on things like this.
i have been hoping la sprotsman might decide to do a story on it and give us all these missing details about whats going on down there seeing as how it is of great interest to fisherman and the buisnesses down there. who knows, i hope maybe they might consider doing a story on it sometime soon.
here is the link if anyone has trouble finding it: https://www.facebook.com/launch.leeville?sk=wall
LAUNCH LEEVILLE, NON-PROFIT, FACEBOOK FAN PAGE HAS ALL OF THE INFORMATION YOU NEED ON THE LAUNCH. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR 1.5 YEARS TO GET THIS THING BUILT. THE MONEY AND PERMITS ARE IN PLACE, JUST UNEXCUSEABLE DELAYS FROM THE PARISH PRESIDENT.
I read the recent article in HoumaToday. Thank you for your efforts! Good luck!!
...Geronimo sez:...too many Coonazzes want to spend too much of the other Coonazzes money...while all the other Coonazzes make 'poor mouth' while being impressed ???...if you ever get chance look at property lines drawn on maps by Coonazzes w/fancy alligator shoes and French cuffs) from Larry Moe & Zig Zag Curly Property Surveys...cheer/cheers
