LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A citizens advisory committee is reviewing and prioritizing elements of the draft Lafayette Parish comprehensive plan that was released last week.
Volunteers and consultants have been working for more than a year on a plan that would guide development in the city of Lafayette and unincorporated parts of the parish through 2035.
The Advertiser reports residents added their input during several workshops and forums that began in April 2012 and concluded in May.
The results include 10 elements with various policies and goals under each and more than 400 action items necessary to implement each.
The plan also includes a Future Land Use Map that indicates generally what types of industrial, commercial and residential developments should be encouraged in what areas of the parish.
