There is still debate over whether a 223-acre tract of land between La. Hwy. 76 and La. Hwy. 413 is residential or agricultural.
The issue first came to the parish council’s attention when Allen Herring requested a rezoning of his property, one of the lots on the tract of land, from residential to agricultural.
Real estate agent Skipper Grady said the parish made a mistake in labeling the entire tract residential, saying that only 27 acres were supposed to be residential, for a subdivision called Acadian Bayou Estates, and the rest was supposed to be agricultural.
