Parish Proud: Committed to measurable, meaningful and noticeable differences, one Quality of Place issue at a time.

What, Why and How of Parish Proud

Parish Proud is dedicated to improving the Quality of Place across Lafayette Parish and within its incorporated areas. We do this by equipping stakeholders with resources that help build their capacity to transform the pride we feel into pride we see.

With a vision of Lafayette Parish being a thriving and vibrant place for both residents and visitors, Parish Proud works collaboratively with public and private partners to minimize visual pollution and optimize visual vibrancy.

Parish Proud wants everyone to be proud of their home! In order to do that, we need to better understand how everyone currently perceives it. What makes you feel pride for our community and what doesn’t? Perhaps there are things that make you feel a bit embarrassed. We want to better understand all of these things!

Describe your vision to help point us towards a more vibrant and thriving future. Together, we can create a parish everyone can be proud to call home and excited to express that pride in action!
