LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A master plan that will guide the future growth of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette over the next 15 years is now under development by Architects Southwest. 

The plan is expected to be completed by mid-December and focuses on development of the main academic campus and the commons area, which includes the research park, athletic complexes and intramural fields, Architect Southwest's Steve Oubre told The Advocate. Potential uses for Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center will also be part of the master plan, ULL President Joe Savoie said in an email.
The hospital, for sale for $36 million, was to be vacated
Saturday with the official opening of the new Lourdes hospital in
south Lafayette.
