Earlier this month, Lafayette Consolidated Government announced the scheduling of PlanLafayette Week during February and the simultaneous release of the draft comprehensive plan.
The draft plan will be organized into four “big ideas.” The events that comprise PlanLafayette Week will expose the concepts in the draft document to the public, as well as educate the public about the action items recommended within the four big ideas.
PlanLafayette organizers have teamed with the705 to host an ArtWalk event on Saturday, February 8 at the Lafayette Science Museum. The event will serve as a preview to the PlanLafayette forums scheduled for February 11 and 12. In addition, the705 will highlight their new ReCover Acadiana initiative which is the organization's effort to combat blight in the region.
“As the organization for young leaders in Acadiana, we felt it was so important for the705 to have an important role in PlanLafayette week and the unveiling of the comprehensive plan. The recommendations that are in the plan are all about creating the Lafayette we want to be in twenty years— for us and for our children. It is so important for the younger generations to educate themselves on the concepts in the plan, and that is why the705 stepped up to sponsor this event and to help get the word out,” said Brittany Broussard, President of the705.
This event will be held at the Lafayette Science Museum on Saturday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in conjunction with ArtWalk. The event is open to the public and no registration is required.
