Cleco Power Certifies Another SmartSite
Cleco Power LLC’s Business Development Department recently certified a 148-acre site at the Bunkie Industrial Park into its SmartSite portfolio. The site joins two others, one in Evangeline Parish and one at the Natchitoches Parish Port. The Bunkie site is located near Interstate 49 and in proximity to Acadiana Railway. “As businesses look to grow they want to locate properties that are easily permitted, contain no surprises and have available or accessible infrastructure,” says Mark Sweeney, senior principal, McCallum Sweeney Consulting LLC, which certified the site. “We essentially identify all of the things that are important to business and industry so that they know up front what a piece of property offers. Says Bunkie Mayor Mike Robertson: “The SmartSites certification gives assurance and peace of mind to industry that there is less risk involved in locating in our industrial park with a faster startup.” For complete details, visit www.cleco.com.
