PlanLafayette Week 2014
 
Plan Lafayette Week was a successful celebration of the release of the core Comprehensive Plan document at Community Forum Series 4. There were fourteen events the week of February 5 to the 12, 2014. The week started with a Council Declaration on Tuesday, February 5 and was kicked off by Mayor-President, Joey Durel, at his State of the Parish address on Wednesday, February 6. The rest of the week was full of privately sponsored events that highlight the 4 Big Ideas of the Comprehensive Plan. Also, there were public meetings for three small areas that will demonstrate best practices in development. Last but not least, was a celebration of the Comprehensive Plan, at the Science Museum on Saturday ArtWalk that had more than 900 people walk through the exhibit.
