The705 May Membership Meeting dives into the I-49 project with a special guest speaker, Louisiana State Secretary of Transportation, Shawn Wilson.

Hear what the status and plans are for the I-49 connector in Lafayette and engage in a conversation with the Secretary on how this project will impact our community and what role we can play. Join us for this special meeting on Wednesday, May 18th at 5:30pm in a location in the heart of the project, St. Genevieve Church, 417 East Simcoe Street. After the meeting at St. Genevieve, join us for a block party with the Sterling Grove neighbors behind the church, catered by Bread & Circus.

Want to know more about I-49, get caught up and provide feedback? Join us for a workshop that works for you, hosted by members of The705 I-49 Task Force. We’re offering two workshops to give you two opportunities to plug in. The meetings will be the same, but simply offer two times so you can pick the most convenient for you. The meetings will be held Tuesday, May 10th at 7:30am or Thursday, May 12th at 5:30pm. Both meetings will be at Rosa Parks Transportation Center, 101 Jefferson Street. At these meetings, we will help you fill out your own evaluation matrix on the proposed refined concepts and answer questions from members of The705. Then, we will submit your feedback to DOTD by the deadline on May 15th from our official seat on the Community Working Group with DOTD.

We might not be able to influence whether the I-49 Connector is built, or where, but we can influence how.
