LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette City-Parish Council is considering new development regulations for rural areas of Lafayette Parish, where there are currently few guidelines on what can be built and where.
Councilmen Kevin Naquin and Jay Castille on Tuesday are scheduled to introduce a plan that in some instances calls for trees, buffer space and fences when new developments conflict with what's already in place.
A final vote on the regulations is scheduled for Aug. 28.The city of Lafayette has zoning laws in place that dictate what can be built where.
