Louisiana Development Ready Communities Program
The City of Abbeville is participating in the Louisiana Development Ready Communities Program (LDRC Program), which is designed to enhance community competitiveness by focusing on economic development capacity and readiness at local levels. The initiative raises awareness of the processes of economic development and the necessary factors to achieve success. It provides community leaders with clear direction on specific resources needed to foster successful economic development while increasing collaboration between municipal, parish, regional and state economic development practitioners.
Once readiness is determined, the LDRC team will collaborate directly with the City of Abbeville team to identify potential goals and resources available to strengthen economic development capacity.
There will be a town hall meeting November 3, 2021 to discuss goals and ideas stemming from research done along with a survey conducted in summer 2021 open to the public and free of charge.
