The Village of Maurice has seen significant growth over the past few years, adding hundreds to their population, new businesses opening and the expansion of their city limits.
But according to Mayor Wayne Theriot there's just one thing missing, a town center, but that's about to change. Mayor Theriot announced the development of what's being called The Maurice Village Center. It will be located in the heart of Maurice and be home to several boutiques and a café.
Mayor Theriot says he hopes this new mall area will help create a centralized location for people to meet and hang out. Theriot says right now Maurice doesn't have a true downtown area and this will help bring one to the area.
Construction on Maurice Village Center should begin soon and be completed by next spring.
