‘Tax Rededication’ Might Improve La. Campground

The Lafayette (La.) Parks and Recreation department is looking at new initiatives to help fund improvements to their parks, according to KATC.

In November, Lafayette Parish voters passed a tax rededication that gave $500,000 per year to the “CREATE” initiative.

Parks and Recreation officials say they would use the money to attract more tourists to sites like the Acadiana Park’s campground.

Parks and Rec Director Gerald Boudreaux said this is one of the parks he plans to identify as needing major capital improvements, bumping up the advertising and making the campsite more attractive to tourists.

“Now we don’t have full hookups, which means they don’t have sewage down here. They have water and electricity and some of the electrical needs upgrading because I’ve had some difficulty in the past with it,” said Gillette.
