Councilman Francis Touchet Jr. discusses plans for the space at the old tourism office. The wall behind the wooden shelf will be removed to open up the area. The room to the right will be made into a handicap accessible restroom.
An empty space owned by the city will soon have a new purpose.
Plans are in the works to remodel the old Vermilion Parish Tourism office on Veterans Memorial Drive and turn it into a space that can be utilized as a meeting place for various civic organizations.
“If the Kiwanis Club wants to meet here or the Rotarians want to use it,” Councilman Francis Touchet Jr. said, “we can have a place for them to be able to do that.”
“For the various organizations, there is going to be a space if they want to use it.”
