LAFAYETTE, La. — Following hefty opposition from neighbors and zoning officials alike, Lafayette City Council is giving a University Avenue convenience store and gas station.

According to our media partners at The Advocate, the council voted 3-2 to continue with the project. An amendment by Councilman Andy Naquin requiring an eight-foot privacy fence and limited hours from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. swayed the decision.

The location in question is at 1803 and 1809 W. University Avenue, which you may remember as the previous location of Flowers, Etc.

Mayor President Monique Boulet has until the end of the month to make a decision on the ordinance.
