LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Tuesday evening the Lake Charles Port board held a committee meeting. Members from the Lake Charles Port and George Swift with the SWLA Economic Development Alliance met to discuss possible ways to stimulate economic growth.

"I updated some of the commissioners today on the request for proposals that we've gotten over the last year, what the requirements are, so they can help develop some of the port property. We have requests for large buildings that we don't necessarily have. There are some great sites in our region and I am just informing the port commissioners as to some of the needs," said George Swift with the SWLA Economic Development Alliance.
