They are both off of Fieldspan near hwy 90. You may have a Duson address, but they aren't in Duson.

re: Moving to Lafayette


Not sure what you're price range would be but I develop real estate and have a subdivision on the South Side (Hwy 167) that is in a good area...safety, convenience, traffic, etc.

My partner builds homes also, all custom and there are a few houses for sale in the neighborhood.

There's a quiet subdivision off of Dulles...on the border of Scott & Lafayette


Grew up in this area. There is Fox Chase, La Village, and Prairie View.

but just search Georgetown Loop at Canyon Ridge. There's an association pool & tennis courts.


Believe that is on the other side of rue de belier off of dulles

re: Moving to Lafayette


My parents live in one of those subdivisions and I must say the houses are no where near as close as alot of other subdivisions in the Lafayette area. For them it was perfect because their old house was on about 6 acres near Mire and my dad was getting sick of having to take care of the yard. Plus we've lived out in the country our entire lives so it being even just a little closer to Lafayette was a plus.

re: Moving to Lafayette


Check out St. Landry Parish just north of Carencro and south of Grand Coteau and Sunset. Your commute would be much shorter than Broussard/Youngsville (you do not want to drive across Lafayette at rush hour). The property is cheaper, there are some nice areas and there are no permitting concerns. The downside is that the public schools are nowhere near as good as Lafayette. There are good private schools around.

There are good places to live in the Scott/Carencro area. Make sure you check the houses in that area well as many flooded when the area received around 15 inches of rain in one day in March 2012.

Actually the area marked "country" on this map is now one of the best areas around Lafyette to live.

These are all legit. Also, Family Life Christian Academy is a good school in the area (across the street from West Park actually). Small class sizes, good teachers, and all around good people.

re: Moving to Lafayette


This is your choices:

Lafayette...southside. good if not great price retention on a house. I live in the 'hard' on the eyes area near Alleman. Great schools, non flood, mid of the city. Wouldn't live anywhere else within the city. Houses are older but well built. Sellers will get a premium $$$ because they can.

Broussard/Youngsville Areas:
You had better LOVE your new neighbor as your house will be 6 feet away on both sides of you. Expensive per square foot. Traffic is terrible in the mornings/afternoons. Many flood zones too. Broussard is not self suffiencient as it gets most of its water from Lafayette, you will pay a higher water rate unless you have a crappy water well/sewage system installed by the developer of the subdivision. Buyer beware. No trees either

Don't know much about Scott area but mostly rural with subdivisions built on former sugar cane fields ala Youngsville. Would never live in Duson esp. off Fieldspan road. Crack heaven there.

Carencro: Again, rural developments with crappy schools. Avoid it like the plague along with Lafayette 'North'
