Our History
The downtown business corridor is located in Old Town Lafayette and runs primarily along Public Road and Simpson Street. For information about the city’s founder, Mary Miller, and our rich coal mining and agricultural history, read about Historic Lafayette.

Vision Plan
In 2011, a Downtown Vision Plan was adopted by the Lafayette Urban Renewal Authority to set forth policies for the future of downtown and to outline a strategy to continue the area’s revitalization. The plan is advisory and serves as a guide for public decisions related to development within the downtown area. It is intended to provide the city and stakeholders with a guiding document based on market reality, community sentiment, and economic feasibility.
