Want to tell Lafayette officials what you think should be done with jogging trails, red light cameras, fiber to the home, garbage collection, bike lanes, dog parks or Johnston Street? The Lafayette Consolidated Government Comprehensive Plan Community Forums are where you need to be! The Lafayette Comprehensive Plan will include transportation, public services, economic development, parks and recreation, and arts and culture- and your opinion matters. The Comprehensive Plan will become our long-range guidebook for the growth, development and redevelopment of our community. It provides a framework and action program to be implemented over a period of years to achieve the vision of the future developed by the residents.These forums will allow everyone an opportunity to participate in the planning process.
