Public Safety Building and Parking Garage

Banner with rendering

The City of Lafayette is constructing a Public Safety Building and Public Parking Garage on the south side of Columbia Street, between 6th and 7th Streets, in downtown Lafayette. 

As the City of Lafayette continues to grow, our citizens should have continued access to safety services, infrastructure that provides leading technology and innovative safety programs to meet the public’s expectations. The new structure will also assist in the City’s recruitment and retention of top talent to provide our residents a safe community.  

The new connecting parking garage will support both the City staff and the public to enjoy the activities and events of Downtown or to do their daily business.  With a continued focus on public spaces that serves our community, the site will include a green space between the parking garage and safety building for events, meetings and public gatherings.

The public is asked to participate in additional engagement opportunities by visiting the Virtual Meeting Room.
