ST. MARTINVILLE, La. (AP) — The process used to select farmland outside St. Martinville as the site of South Louisiana  Community College's new Evangeline campus is under review in the wake of complaints lodged by two Breaux Bridge businessmen.

The Advocate reports ( Ray Pellerin and his son Frank questioned the selection of the vacant farmland. They said it didn't meet requirements set out in the request for land donations issued by the LCTCS Facilities Corp.

LCTCS Facilities Corp. is the private, nonprofit group created by the Louisiana Community and Technical College System to facilitate capital outlay projects.

The Pellerins claimed that the land offered by the city of St. Martinville did not fulfill the same requirements and that the city does not yet own the property it is donating.
