First Cameron Parish Home Show held

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC-TV) – The first Cameron Parish Home Show was held Saturday at Grand Lake High School.

The show, which is the first in a series of home shows, is designed to encourage former residents to move back to the parish. Following recent storms, many residents moved away from Cameron Parish.

Vendors from across the region showcased their home construction models Saturday. Each of the construction models are designed to withstand hurricanes, something folks in Cameron Parish are all too familiar with.

"We're here to let people know what we build and to talk to them and let them know how we can help them get a home because so many people here have lost their homes," said Gisela Houseman, owner of Houseman Homes and one of the vendors at the home show.

"We wanted them to be oriented into new building types, housing styles and models that are sustainable along the coast," said Ernie Broussard, Director of the Cameron Parish Office of Planning and Development.

The Cameron Police Jury is even offering special incentives to get people to move back to the parish.

For more information, contact the Office of Planning and Development at (337) 775-5206 or the Cameron Parish Housing Center at (337) 775-2209.
