LURA and the Downtown Vision Plan
The Lafayette Urban Renewal Authority was established by City Council resolution on April 20, 1999. The Authority was created in response to a citizens’ petition for the formation of an urban renewal authority, findings of blight in the Old Town area, and following a public hearing on the matter. In 2011, LURA adopted a Downtown Vision Plan to set forth policies for the future of downtown and to outline a strategy to continue the area’s revitalization. Since that time, LURA has accomplished a number of recommendations in the Vision.
