plan lafayette week

Last year, Lafayette adopted its comprehensive plan, known as PlanLafayette. It sets the framework for development throughout the city over the next 20 years so we build the city we want, rather than do it haphazardly.

And last year, PlanLafayette designated a week in February to highlight items from the plan that are of interest to Lafayette residents. This year, they're bringin' it back!

PlanLafayette Week will be held from February 4-11, 2015. A series of events are scheduled, and they'll show how some of the plan's action items are being put into place, along with the action items coming up next. The different events are bringing in planning experts from across the country.

If you like to be involved in city and community events, this week will be like going to Disney World! There are events for just about anything you could want to hear about. For all the what, when, where and registration link-a-roos (yeah, I went there), head over to the PlanLafayette Week website.
