Developer Brian Clement of CA Homes pulled his proposal to build the 99-acre subdivision on Monday, the same day it was supposed to go before the Planning Commission.

The subdivision would be constructed near West Broussard’s intersection at Ridge Road. At the rate of constructing 40 homes a year, it may take almost a decade to complete construction at the site, Clement told The Daily Advertiser.

The proposal is expected to go before the commission in the future, but no word when.

Clement the pulled the proposal the same day The Daily Advertiser published an article addressing concerns over Lafayette’s rapid growth.

Part of CA’s Homes planned request included annexation into Lafayette to tap into the city’s utility system. Clement said CA’s plans, which are not yet fully developed, are to sell Acadian Meadows homes probably in the $250,000 to $260,000 range, mostly on lots of about 60 feet by 120 feet. The homes will be between 1,800 to 1,900 square feet.

Clement said the company plans to build about 110 homes in the first phase of Acadian Meadow’s construction. That construction was supposed to be pending the Planning Commission’s approval Monday night.
