City officials want to know what you think about the future of the University Avenue Corridor. 

Lafayette Consolidated Government and the Acadiana Planning Commission have held a couple of public meetings to provide information and gather citizen feedback as a part of the University Avenue corridor study.

At the most recent meeting held at Bridge Ministry of Acadiana on April 10, the planning team shared several design options to improve intersections and streetscape along the University Avenue Corridor, from Renaud to the Four Corners areas. In addition, the team shared conceptual plans for "catalyst developments" at three locations, based on market analysis and input from the community. Approximately 80 attendees were asked to provide feedback on the various design and catalyst development options, and now the team is seeking additional feedback. 

Citizens who were unable to attend the April 10 meeting and participate in the voting exercise in person can still do so via an online, downloadable survey. There are two ways to participate.

1.   Download the survey and fill it out on your computer as the survey is a fillable PDF form. Once completed, click the "Submit" button on the bottom of the last page. After clicking “submit,” the survey with your answers will be emailed to the ? CSRS planning team. It is important to note the survey must be downloaded and opened as a file on your computer. If you view the survey through a "preview," then you will not have access to the fillable fields.

2.   Download and print the survey, then mail the completed, paper survey to: Neil LeBouef, Lafayette City-Parish Government, Dept. 5901, P.O. Box 4017-C, Lafayette, LA, 70502. 

The survey is available for download at https://csrsinc.app.box.com/s/y6hspzur5p2si55w5u63xpwlgnbqayjt.

All completed surveys, both emailed and mailed, are due by noon on May 3, 2018.

For more information, or if you have questions about the project, please contact Neil LeBouef, Project Manager, at 337-291-7196 or nlebouef@lafayettela.gov.

The purpose of the University Avenue corridor study is to identify opportunities to improve the transportation efficiency and mobility options of the corridor, as well as enhance its potential for economic revitalization. The project aims to unify planning along the state highway by bringing together various efforts to identify implementation steps to happen over the next few years. CSRS will deliver the Final Report in June of this year, and will propose priority projects, budgets and timelines for implementation based on community feedback and corridor analysis.
