The Lafayette Airport Commission has released a pair of proposed designs for the new terminal and is asking the public to weigh in. The competing designs have been given the names Spirit and Journey. You can take the commission’s survey by clicking here. But The IND has its own survey on our homepage and we want you to participate in that one, too.

A couple of things to consider before making your choice: Journey, like contemporaries Heart, Foreigner and Styxx, rocked the ’70s and went soft in the ’80s. But, the band's 1981 hit “Don’t Stop Believing” is an all-time classic, plus Journey is rocking arenas again with a diminutive Filipino lead singer whose pipes rival Steve Perry’s. HOWEVER: Spirit’s 1970 record 12 Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus is considered a landmark art-concept album. The band’s creative genius, guitarist-singer-songwriter Randy California, drowned in the Pacific ocean in 1997 at age 45 while saving his son from the same fate. His eponymous foundation helps at-risk kids access after-school music education.

So, which airport terminal design do you prefer? Spirit or Journey?
