TND for west Lafayette on fast track

by Walter Pierce

A group of developers from Texas and Louisiana are seeking a rezoning of roughly 56 acres on either side of Ambassador Caffery Parkway between Dulles Drive and Guilbeau Road to build a traditional neighborhood development. TNDs — like River Ranch and Sugar Mill Pond — mix residential and business properties in close quarters. The proposed development is called Cafferytown.

Although the Planning, Zoning and Codes Department has yet to evaluate the plan, the Lafayette City-Parish Council will vote Tuesday on an introductory ordinance to rezone the acreage from residential and business to traditional neighborhood development. According to a PZC memo, planners will review the TND proposal on Nov. 16 and make a recommendation to the council ahead of a Nov. 24 vote on final adoption, assuming the council approves the introductory ordinance on Tuesday.
