On Wednesday morning, Downtown Lafayette is hosting a public forum on downtown parking at Acadiana Center for the Arts.

The forum will be live-streamed on theDowntown Lafayette Facebook page .

After a recently announced change to parking meters in Downtown Lafayette, a forum was set up for the public to voice their concerns and opinions. The proposed changes included doubling meter fees and 24/7 monitoring and were supposed to take effect on January 19. DDA says that after a council meeting in late January, the change will not yet be put in place.

"It’s more important than ever to open up a dialogue and ensure that stakeholders most impacted by any future changes to parking, including business owners, residents, employees, developers, and visitors, have a chance to share their insights, concerns, and ideas for how to make downtown parking more user-friendly and business-friendly," Downtown Lafayette says.

They will be using interactive tools during the forum to collect information and data that will be shared with LCG Administration.

"We want to hear from stakeholders like you who will be impacted.Steps you can take today to be a part of the conversation," they said.

The forum will happen on Wednesday, February 3, from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM.

This event will be held virtually and in person, with a maximum of 50 in-person attendees to comply with COVID-19 event guidelines
