Economy booming inside parish
Obviously the folks who filed those reports haven’t been to Lincoln Parish lately.
Consider these local economic indicators:
• The new eight-screen cinema is expected to open June 1;
• Lowe’s opening is set for May 5;
• Construction will soon begin on an Applebees and a Starbucks;
• Ground has been broken on two new hotels for the area, with possible plans for a third;
• Construction has started on the I-20 Service Road project; and
• There is hardly an area of the parish that is not experiencing growth in the housing market.
