Moving The Community Forward - BPHA

 Bayou  Pigeon Heritage - Moving  the Community Forward - Special Announcement

 # 3 of 4 

Agreement on  proposed  Park  for Bayou  Pigeon 

The Iberville Parish Parks & Recreation and  A. Wilbert's Sons LLC in conjunction with The Bayou  Pigeon Heritage  Association,  have reached an agreement on a proposed Park / Playground on The Bayou  Pigeon Heritage Complex.

The  Heritage  Association would like  to commend & recognize  the yeoman's job by Ms. Chasity Berthelot Easley, Iberville Parish Council Woman  District 2 (including Bayou Pigeon), BPHA Board Member  and  daughter of Mr. McCurley Berthelot Jr. & Sandra  Allemands lifelong residents of Bayou  Pigeon,  pushing  for and facilitating  negotiations between the 3 groups. Without her perseverance on getting  something for Bayou  Pigeon this  would not have happened.

Remember the Parish originally turned  down  the opportunity to take over the complex  from the Diocese of BTR.

Thanks to Iberville Parish President Mitchell Ourso for coming to the table  to support the only Cajun community in  Iberville Parish.

The agreement consist of:

1. A.  Wilbert’s &  Sons LLC has given permission to IPRD to build a  Playground / Park on the  Bayou  Pigeon Heritage site, as they are the landowner.

2. The BPHA agrees to let 4 acres of their current lease to be taken over by the IPRD and A.  Wilbert’s &  Sons LLC will issue  a  new Lease to IPRD.

3. The BPHA lease is modified  to contain the 4 acres, ie, from Hwy 75 frontage to include Front Ball Field, Heritage Hall, The Pavilion, The  3 Bedroom Brick Home and Activity Center / Gym 

4. IPRD will  improve the road / entrance to the new park  and maintain that facility. The BPHA will continue  to maintain their  facility.

The BPHA believes  the new park  will highlight / increase the use our Event Venues and provide overall economic development  not only  for Bayou Pigeon but to all Iberville parish as  well.  

By keeping them in Iberville Parish instead of going other places.

Plan: Proposed park at Bayou Pigeon.
