Nearly 900 citizens of Lafayette and the unincorporated areas of the parish spent time reviewing four different plans for Lafayette's future this past Tuesday and Wednesday at planning sessions as part of the Lafayette's Comprehensive Plan.

There were two prior sessions for public input, and this week there were two days of forums where citizens were about to vote about which plan they thought was best for Lafayette's Comprehensive Plan.  The plan will work as a guidebook for Lafayette's growth and development in the coming decades.

A variety of issues are expected to be addressed by the plan like economic growth, where to build roads and parks, and how best guide new developments throughout Lafayette and the unincorporated areas.

The Lafayette City-Parish Council would have the job of approving any of the new regulations for commercial and residential developments.
