LaFayette Downtown Development Authority administers the city’s Main Street program and works closely with the LaFayette Historic Preservation Commission on historic preservation projects.
“Good things are happening in downtown LaFayette,” Main Street and economic development director Catherine Edgemon said. “One Eleven restaurant, which opened a few months ago, has become a popular destination for residents and visitors, and organizers of the second annual Memorial Day Music Festival stepped up their efforts to grow the event and to attract a larger audience than last year’s event.”
The DDA, a music festival sponsor, worked with LaFayette Presbyterian Church to transform a under-utilized, vacant lot into a small park with trees, benches, a lighted sculpture and a mural of the LaFayette Square as it appeared circa 1940, Edgemon said.
The city also completed the first phase of a streetscape project in downtown, which included sidewalk pavers, new sidewalks, curbs and gutters, landscape or brick paver islands with trees and grass, new painted crosswalks and sidewalk lamps, she said.
