Ben Powers – Guest Speaker – 6/7/16

Kiwanis of Lafayette thanks Ben Powers, website developer for DevelopingLafayette.com for speaking to us today.

Developing Lafayette is a website that charts new commercial growth in the city.  Ben became fascinated by commercial development as a child growing up in rural Turkey Creek and has made it his mission to find out what new businesses are opening their doors in our city.

He started Developing Lafayette as a Facebook page and his first post was about the Cheddars Restaurant that opened on Johnson Street.  The project really took off with his post announcing the Whole Foods development on Ambassador Caffery Parkway.  Ben also talked about how he researches new developments and when is the right time to post about them.

We encourage you to visit his website here. You can also receive updates via his Facebook page by clicking this link.

Thanks again to Ben Powers for visiting with us today!
