Central Speaks with the Mayor

June 6, 2011 – A Few Questions for Mayor Watts

What new businesses are looking seriously at locating in Central?
    Mike Anderson’s is coming to Greenwell Springs near Sullivan.  They should be breaking ground by October and it is going to be a really nice restaurant.  Of course we have Louis DeAngelo’s coming to Sullivan Road just south of Wax and Louis runs a first class restaurant.   Also, two of the investors are from here in Central, Mike Breaux & Charlie Kinsley.  Those two restaurants we know for sure.  Taco Bell is on go but have not committed.  They received a petition from the Central Private students and already have aerial photos of Central and are looking for property.  Huddle House, very similar to Waffle House, also wants to come to Central and is looking for a location, but has not made a formal commitment.  Finally, I welcome the Marinos who have bought Central Florist from Melissa and Marty Guilbeau.

Can you give us an update on the Cooking in Central property?
    It is absolutely going to be ready for next year.  They are working hard on the project.  The pavilion will be built and they are working on the layout for the roads.

What else is going on that you would like to share with the Central Community?
    I would like to thank everyone who helped in any way with the Memorial Day service, including the Republican Women of Central, Grace Pentecostal Church and Pastor Glen Murphy, Bill Parsons, Billy Thompson and Central Florist.
    I am also excited about the upcoming Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital Mansion Fundraiser.  The house is being built in Village Lakes Subdivision right here in Central.  I would especially like to thank all of the banks here in Central for supporting this effort by selling tickets.
