LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — South Louisiana Community College plans to start construction of its new St. Martinville campus in July, but officials still need to find a place to build the campus.

The college issued two requests for land donations in the past year in an attempt to find an alternative to a landlocked site on Martin Luther King Drive, across from the college's existing campus.

Christine Payton, public relations director, tells The Advocate a third request for land donations will be issued this week in another attempt to secure a formal donation of at least 9 acres of land within upper St. Martin Parish.

Payton said Chancellor Natalie Harder is confident that a site will be identified in time for construction to start in July.
