LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Officials say Lafayette's unified development code, now in its final draft, could go before the City-Parish Council for adoption by early May.

Lafayette Consolidated Government officials and consultant Mark White of White & Smith LLC summarized the UDC's updated draft before more than 100 members of the Acadian Home Builders Association and the Realtor Association of Acadiana.

The Advertiser reports Monday's session was an installment of PlanLafayette Week, which serves as an information tool and a "report card" on how successful the parish is in seeing out its 20-year comprehensive plan.

The unified development code was created as a rulebook for zoning and development standards to be used by LCG departments.
