LT. GOV LANDRIEU ON BASE REALIGNMENT AND CLOSURE (BRAC) RECOMMENDATIONS
“I stand ready to help Governor Blanco and our Congressional Delegation as we work to overcome the challenges dealt to Louisiana through the BRAC recommendations. I know that Louisiana will turn this challenge into an opportunity.
“England Airforce Base, now the England Industrial Airpark, should serve as a model that guides our work in the days ahead. Following its closure in 1992, this base was transformed into an economic engine for the Alexandria region. England Industrial Park even houses a prosperous senior living community, England Oaks.
“In the past the Louisiana Retirement Development Commission has worked with the Alexandria hospitality industry to market England Airpark as a retirement destination, and we stand ready to assist in development and planning in the future."
The Office of the Lieutenant Governor oversees the Louisiana Retirement Development Commission.
