St. Martinville, Breaux Bridge spar about land donation

Updated:
BREAUX BRIDGE, La. (AP) - Two groups are fighting to donate property for a new community college campus.

South Louisiana Community College issued a request for land donations last year to locate a $9.2 million building to replace its existing Evangeline campus in St. Martinville.

The Advocate reports the process was overseen by the LCTCS Facilities Corp., a private, nonprofit group created to help expedite the system's capital outlay projects. A review committee selected the City of St. Martinville's proposal of nine acres off La. 31 near the old Martin Mills' plant over a proposal by Breaux Bridge businessmen Ray and Frank Pellerin for a nine-acre site off Rees Street in Breaux Bridge.

The Pellerins contend the site recommendation process was flawed.

Board member Stephen Smith says both proposals remain under review
