LAFAYETTE — The final charrette to discuss the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s master plan is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday in Wharton Hall, room 222, a news release said.
The charrette — or feedback session with planners — is open to the public and is the last opportunity to provide feedback on the plan before its finalization.
The master plan will chart the university’s growth in the next 15 years and also creates codes to guide future growth.
The effort has been led by Steve Oubre, of Architects Southwest, and other consultants.
As part of the process, members of the university community participated in small workshops to gather data, develop baselines and determine future needs, such as facility improvements, program enrollment and infrastructure needs, according to a news release.
