Louisiana RV Park Would Serve Oil and Gas Workers
A man who wants to develop an RV park at the DeSoto Police Jury's industrial park in Mansfield, La., received approval provided the plans do not interfere with grant projects in his targeted area, according to the Shreveport Times.
Brian Davlin offered $6,500 an acre for 5.6 acres. Mansfield is located 35 miles south of Shreveport, in the northwest corner of the state. Assistant District Attorney Gary Evans told Davlin he would have to agree to the same stipulations as other industrial park tenants.
One of the terms would require Davlin and his partners to give the Police Jury the first right of refusal to buy back the land if they decide to sell it.
Davlin hopes to entice oil and gas workers, in addition to guests attending events at the motocross park across the road. A public hearing will be held at 4:30 p.m. May 10 to allow comment on the proposed land sale.
