The Lafayette Urban Renewal Authority (LURA) is the public entity to affect revitalization and redevelopment in the downtown area.
The authority works in partnership with property owners to improve existing structures, bring new commercial and mixed-use development to raw land within the blighted area, and prevent the deterioration of properties within the area.

The Facade Program provides matching grants to make exterior improvements to commercial and residential buildings that will encourage customers to shop, dine and do business within the Old Town Urban Renewal District. Review more on the program's webpage at Lafayetteco.gov/FacadeProgram
