125 acre development

Posted: Updated:

Couret Farms, a one hundred and twenty five acre real estate development just off Pont Des Mouton road in Lafayette, is nearing the end of its first phase. 

It's a project that began earlier this year and when complete will include a mixture of retail, business, residential and recreational living. The development will be similar to the one in River Ranch and Sugar Mill Pond. Phase one includes the construction of seventy two homes, half of which have already been contracted. But as phase one nears the end, phase two, if approved, could include a new school.

According to Jan Swift with the Upper Lafayette Economic Development Foundation, there is an application for a charter school which will go on about six acres of land in Couret Farms. That application will go to the BESE board for a vote this week.

If all goes as planned a new school could open by the beginning of the school year. The entire Couret Farms development should be complete by 2020.
