Development-Ready Certified Sites
When it comes time to find the best location for your operation, Louisiana has an extensive selection of development-ready sites searchable in its Sites and Buildings Database.
The LED Certified Sites program qualifies industrial sites based on zoning restrictions, title work, environmental studies, soil analysis and surveys. These sites are 180-day development ready and have substantial due diligence studies performed to receive certification.
To assist companies needing to make complex site identification decisions, LED has secured or has access to GIS maps for every region of the state — enabling project managers to locate suitable sites quickly.
