Livingston residents still support Juban Crossing

DENHAM SPRINGS - Juban Crossing stores will begin opening next year, according to developer Stephen Keller, despite the recent veto of a bill that would help fund construction of the retail location.

Governor Bobby Jindal last week vetoed a measure creating a new tax district around the site. Developers had hoped to speed up construction if the plan to pay for infrastructure improvements was approved.

Most people living near the site say they hope construction continues. They tell News 2 it would be nice having new shopping options that do not involve driving to Baton Rouge.  Some worry the location would just bring those traffic problems to their area of Livingston Parish.

In a release issued last week, developers say they are fully committed to the project and are working every day to bring it closer to a reality.
