Visionary Master Plan Project Initiated for Opelousas Downtown Development District
The Opelousas Downtown Development District (ODDD), an economic development district in St. Landry Parish, is preparing a Downtown Master Plan to guide the future development and design of Opelousas’s downtown. Creation of the plan will be based on the shared vision of Opelousas’s residents and stakeholders.
The Time is Now
Opelousas is at a pivotal point in history. The I-49 project is creating new opportunities and a wide variety of stakeholders and investors are taking an active interest in the further development of Opelousas. This master plan project will set a collaborative vision for what the community will become over the next 20 to 30 years and will address issues like infrastructure, greenspace, walkability, beautification and also identify catalyst projects that can be used to propel growth. We encourage community members at all levels to take part in creating the future of Opelousas.
The nine-month planning process will offer a variety of opportunities to become involved and give input in this important project. Attend meetings and sign up for email updates.
