On November 14, 15, 16, and 17, the LCG will be hosting its latest in a series of meetings focused on developing Lafayette's master plan.

City-Parish President Joey Durel described the intent of these latest meetings today during his weekly "Lafayette Live" segment on "Mornings with Ken and Bernie".

We got a collected vision for Lafayette that has been put together.

The next round of community forums is a step in the direction of what we'd like Lafayette to look like.


The forums will take place at the following times and locations:

Wednesday, November 14, noon, Acadiana Center for the Arts
Wednesday, November 14, 6 p.m., Acadian Middle School
Thursday, November 15, noon, South Regional Library
Thursday, November 15, 6 p.m., East Bayou Baptist Church
Friday, November 16, 2 p.m., Heymann Center
Saturday, November 17, 9 a.m., Holy Rosary Institute, Windolph Hall

Residents interested in attending a meeting are asked to visit this website to register for the forum they'd like to attend in order reserve a keypad for voting and to make the check-in process quicker.
