Lafayette has long standing issues with lack of public parking in the downtown area. To hopefully help ease the situation, the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) Design Committee has designed a parking banner to display on city public parking lots.
These banners were approved by City Council on April 14th. These parking banners are the same size as our existing pole banners, and will be hung at the Bank of Lafayette Community Room on E. Villanow Street, and the Courthouse parking lot below Dr. Levie’s office also on E. Villanow Street. Both of these lots are public parking areas, however many citizens do not realize they are available for their use.
These banners will not replace any of the existing business banners, but will be hung on the opposite sides of the poles at these 2 parking lots. Watch for these new banners to be installed in mid-May.
The Downtown Development Authority meets monthly at Walker-Lafayette library in the board room, the 1st Tuesday night of the month at 6pm. The public is always invited to attend.
