Whether you live in and work in Lafayette, or both, you can take part as Lafayette Consolidated Government will be hosting a week-long event called, "PlanLafayette".

During the week of open sessions, attendees can give their ideas for future growth and success for the Lafayette community.

This is the third year in a row that LCG will be hosting the week-long series.

It doesn't cost anything to attend the events, but since space is limited, it is best to register for the events that you are wanting to attend. You can visit their facebook page by clicking here, or the website, by clicking here.

There are four main themes that will be part of this year's focus for PlanLafayette, and they include:

  • Refine Government
