Jozy's Vision...


Last weekend was the unveiling of the LCG Comprehensive Plan Vision Statement, held at the Horse Farm here in Lafayette. The Horse Farm is a 125 acre piece of land smack dab on the middle of our city that is completely undeveloped. There is no doubt that it will be one of the centerpieces of the future vision for Lafayette, so it was a great setting to have the vision statement unveiled. Attendees at the event were able to give feedback on the vision statement as well as provide comments about the future of the Horse Farm itself. Jozy is voting for a massive 100 acre dog park but I am not sure she will get her way. Go read the vision statement here. And congratulations to my wife, intimately involved in this effort, working tirelessly day and night to make it a success!


The upper photo is a picture of Jozy at the Horse Farm, her first ever visit. This is at the front of the 100+ acres and you can see the wide open space behind her. The photo immediately above is of the city parish president on a police horse at the event. 


While there, jozy explored an old house on the property and found this wheel barrow. She was quite excited about this particular antique. Go read about the effort to save the Horse Farm here.

I guess growing up only minutes from that place I also just revered it as the last bit of old country Lafayette had left! I certainly hope they do the best possible with it! I remember as a small child telling my dad I wanted to work there when I grew older! Times have indeed changed.
