Louisiana Offers More Than 40 180-Day Development-Ready Sites

LED Certified Sites represent dozens of industrial sites across Louisiana authenticated as ready for development. Sites gain LED certification only after an extensive application process and exhaustive review. The benefits of certification include official acknowledgement of a site’s suitability and readiness for development, and improved success in the site selection process. The program’s rigorous review process — conducted by Louisiana Economic Development and URS, an independent engineering firm — reduces risk and shortens development schedules, ensuring companies a better return on investment.
