Vote on downtown Lafayette bar zoning expected in July
LAFAYETTE, La. - A new policy on bars in Lafayette's downtown district likely won't come until July.
The Associated Press reports Lafayette Consolidated Government Planning, Zoning and Development director Carlee Alm-LaBar gave an update on the effort to shape a new policy to the Zoning Commission on Monday.
As a new zoning policy is drafted, she says the department is working with law enforcement through a program called the Knowledge Effect, which researches issues like impaired driving.
The Lafayette City-Parish Council voted to limit the number of bars and clubs downtown in 2003.
