It was four and the door for the Lafayette City-Parish Council Tuesday evening as members enjoyed a light agenda — only four ordinances, all from Planning, Zoning and Codes, were up for final adoption.

The council approved a request to annex six acres off Target Loop on Lafayette’s south side adjacent to Acadiana Square Shopping Center. The property’s owner, Alpha Zeta Partnership, requested the annexation in order to connect to Lafayette Utilities System and develop the site. The Zoning Commission voted unanimously on Sept. 21 to approve the annexation.

The council also approved three rezoning requests: two made by the Lafayette Housing Authority  — one in St. Antoine Gardens on Gillman Road, the other on Patterson Street — were reclassified from single- and two-family residential to transitional business; and property owned by Covenant Baptist Church on Teurlings Drive was reclassified from growth area district to single-family residential. The Zoning Commission also unanimously recommended these rezoning requests at its Sept. 21 meeting.
