Scott council defers action on proposed city land-use code in order to give it further review


SCOTT, Louisiana — The Scott City Council has set aside a proposed city land-use code in order to give further review to a document that could affect development in the city for the next 30 years.

The proposed code would make special provisions for the Apollo Road corridor, an extension that will run from Cameron Street to the intersection of Dulles Drive and Rue de Belier.

The Apollo corridor will serve as an alternate route from Interstate 10 into the heart of Lafayette. Scott officials said they hope to develop the corridor into an attractive new commercial corridor.

The Advocate reports ( ) the proposed code would not impact existing businesses, which would be grandfathered under the old ordinance.

The council voted Thursday to delay action of the new codes.
