Lafayette Consolidated Government, in conjunction with the Acadiana Planning Commission, will hold the last gathering of the series of public meetings as a part of the University Avenue corridor study.
The purpose of this final meeting is to present proposed design options and corridor features on the revitalization initiative focused on the University Avenue corridor.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 12 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Bridge Ministry of Acadiana, located at 512 N. University Avenue.
Attendees will be able to view the draft plan recommendations for the corridor, in an open house setting, and provide feedback before the plan is finalized.
The series of public meetings kicked off in January of 2018. A consulting firm was hired to conduct the planning study and make recommendations for the corridor, provided drawings of possible alternatives to existing infrastructure including sidewalks, shade trees, landmark signs and roundabouts.
In all, more than 150 corridor stakeholders, residents and business owners participated in the process, including sharing their vision for recreation, entertainment and dining options, housing and amenities, identifying areas or landmarks of significance to be preserved and highlighted, and “voting” on design and feature alternatives.
The meeting is open to the public and all interested parties are encouraged to attend. Officials and planners will be on hand to answer questions.
