Lafayette Urban Renewal Authority (LURA)
The Lafayette Urban Renewal Board is the public entity to effect revitalization and redevelopment in the downtown area. The authority will work in partnership with property owners to improve existing structures, bring new commercial and mixed-use development to raw land within the blighted area, and prevent deterioration of properties within the area.
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.

The Authority holds regular meetings on the second Tuesday of the month. Workshops are held on an as-needed basis.
