Evangeline Corridor Initiative along with members from Lafayette Consolidated Government will be on hand for an open house tonight so that people can come and look at their proposed improvement plans for the corridor.

The goal of the Evangeline Corridor is to help revitalize neighborhoods and business areas along the Evangeline Thruway as the I-49 Connector is built.

People from all over Lafayette have been hosting meetings called "Meeting in a Box" to try to learn which projects people think will be a catalyst for business growth and community revitalization for the local area.

The meeting will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight at the Rosa Parks Transportation Center which is at 101 Jefferson Street.

Lafayette Consolidated Government Director of Planning, Zoning and Development Carlee Alm-Labar says,

"With 27 Meetings in a Box completed to date, over 225 community members participated in the latest phase of planning. Now, we need final input from residents and business owners to complete the planning process for neighborhoods along each side of the Corridor path.

You can see what has been identified as catalyst projects and proposed improvement plans.
