LAKE CHARLES - The Chennault International Airport Authority is in talks to buy 440 acres south of the airfield along Louisiana Highway 397.

The American Press reports Executive Director Randy Robb told the Board of Commissioners the land will cost about $660,000, or $1,500 an acre.

Robb said the land would protect Chennault from "unwanted incursion like trailer parks."

Acquiring the land also positions Chennault for possible growth, he said. Robb's said he hopes the land could be used for manufacturing or other industrial use.
