City of Broussard
Downtown Master Plan

The City of Broussard, with assistance from the Lafayette Economic Development Authority (LEDA), has engaged the services of B&A Planning Group to coordinate a charrette for developing a master plan for Broussard’s Main Street and historic downtown.

A charrette is an intensive, interdisciplinary, and publicly inclusive design session that works onsite with public officials, consultants, stakeholders, landowners, and the public to produce a vision for development. This public planning process will take place June 3-6 and will include two public meetings.


 “Broussard has experienced rapid population and development growth in the last decade, and our downtown is an important part of sustainable growth.” says Broussard Mayor Ray Bourque. “Improving our historic downtown will attract businesses to our city center, stimulating the economy and enhancing the quality of life for our residents. We value the input from our community, and I hope our citizens will join us in this envisioning process.”  says LEDA President and CEO Gregg Gothreaux.

Leading the team for this charrette is urban designer Geoff Dyer, who was previously the first Director of Design and subsequent CEO for Lafayette’s Downtown Development Authority, where he continues to finalize a downtown master plan along with the recent completion of a master plan for Lafayette’s Oil Center.


“With the experience of working and previously residing in Acadiana, I have an intimate connection with the area and look forward to contributing to Broussard’s growth,” says Dyer.

The public events for this charrette will be an opening reception on the evening of June 3 and a final presentation on the evening of June 6. The Ballroom of Broussard has donated the space for these events. More information will be posted to the City of Broussard’s Facebook page and www.cityofbroussard.com.
