Residents near the Homewood detention pond project in south Lafayette are asking the Parish Council to delay the transfer of $1.2 million and include them in the “park” planning process.
Our history is full of examples of how dreaming big paid off for Lafayette. But big dreams can distract from accomplishing small, important tasks.
We asked readers to weigh in. Here’s what they had to say.
Vigorous advocacy has paid off, with skaters finally getting another public skate park. And a new private development is underway, too.
On the docket for Tuesday night’s council meetings are approval for more drainage projects, a request to increase the LUS Fiber director’s salary, a report on police training, a request for another restoration tax abatement, and more.
The gist: This week’s council meetings include a number of items that will tee up bigger projects and decisions to come affecting everything from sewer capacity and Vermilion flooding to how the budgeting process will work and how parks will operate.
