The CREATE Strategic Plan for Arts, Culture, and Recreation will catalyze creative assets to improve quality of life, drive our creative economy, and stimulate investment in our community.
CREATE is a blueprint for:
1. Strengthening Lafayette's cultural identity;
2. Catalyzing new and existing creative assets;
3. Driving strategic investment in new cultural infrastructure and revitalization efforts through matches and measurable outcomes; and
4. Attracting more regional, national, and international workers, visitors, and businesses to Lafayette.
With a transparent, actionable strategic plan based on community input, CREATE will strengthen Lafayette's creative and cultural industries, continuously tracking performance indicators to inform ongoing investment and ensure the sustainability of the sector.
Five goals, and their related initiatives, have been identified via public consultation. You can provide feedback to help guide CREATE in reaching some of its goals, by filling out the surveys below.


A thorough asset inventory is one of CREATE's first goals.  Please help to identify some of Lafayette's most important, or potentially underrepresented, cultural assets.
