The Lafayette Public Trust Financing Authority today approved $2.6 million in funding for the former Horse Farm. The funding will be used to develop programming, design and development of the city park.
Lafayette Central Park, Inc., the nonprofit group that oversees the 100-acre park, already has announced that the Urban Land Institute will visit Lafayette to help develop programming plans.
The funding also will be used to staff a master plan team that could consist of architects, land planners and landscapers, Lafayette Central Park attorney Charles Landry says.
Throughout the planning process, public input will be sought, Landry said, and in its final stage, designs and conceptual drawings will be completed.
