The City of Lake Charles entered an agreement to purchase property for the expansion of SOWELA Technical Community College.

Council members approved an ordinance to enter a cooperative endeavor agreement with the State of Louisiana, the Department of Economic Development, the Louisiana Community and Technical College System, the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury and Chennault International Airport Authority for purchase of the property.

The property will be the future home to the proposed Workforce Development Center.

There were concerns that owners of mobile homes on the property would have trouble relocating because their homes were older and not up to standards of most newer parks. However, a non-profit agency has agreed to relocate the residents for free.
