(super: pat trahan)"he said he thinks we have room for another thirty five to forty five new stores and restaurants in downtown lafayette based on his analysis of our downtown market and comparing it to similar markets across the country."gibbs says the public realm, the areas of downtown that are used by the general public, is in great shape and a catylst for future development"on jefferson street, for instance...you've got a narrow street, with wide sidewalks, slow traffic, the street trees are great, streetscapes great. so the public realm, the real expensive difficult one to move, he says is really good." where downtown needs work is the private realm...especially when it comes to opaque windows, dated awnings, and lackluster facades "our public realm is really great. but if you look at the buildings and the facades and the signage...not so great." downtown lafayette has seen its highs and lows. if the advice of gibbs is taking seriously...downtown lafayette could set itself up for an all time high.> [take :carter{ááácarteráá} downtown development authority is now offering a facade grant to downtown businesses. basically, you comply with them when it comes to clear windows and a new facade.in lafayette carter simoneaux news
