How will my survey response be used?

The City of Lafayette's Library and Arts and Cultural Resources departments are currently undergoing a strategic planning process to identify near and longer-term opportunities, priorities, and goals for their work.

This survey is designed to help us better understand what issues are most important to Lafayette residents. Your input will be used to determine the priorities and the future direction of these City departments from 2024-2029.
