Terrebonne Parish To Develop Housing At Old Houma Elementary
HOUMA, LA (AP) — The Terrebonne Parish Council has approved a lease agreement to turn the old Houma Elementary School buildings into affordable apartments.
The Courier’s Chris Leblanc reports a branch of the New Orleans Volunteers of America, Renaissance Neighborhood Development Corp., plans to develop 103 mixed-income apartments as either workforce or senior citizen housing in existing and new buildings. The lease was signed Monday.
Construction is projected to begin in January 2016 with doors opening in February 2017.
The council voted in August to take back possession of the now vacant school property from the Terrebonne Parish School Board.
