Kiwanis of Lafayette thanks Steven Picou for speaking to us today. Mr. Picou is the Executive Director of the Lafayette Regional Airport.
Steven spoke to us about the progress in planning for the new passenger terminal for the Lafayette Airport. Lafayette voters approved a special tax in December 2014 that raised approximately $40 million of the $91 million projected cost.
The project is still in its design phase; however, Mr. Picou believes that the project can be completed in the next five years. Since the new terminal will be built next to the current terminal there should be no interruption to current travelers.
Thanks again to Steven Picou for meeting with us today.
In other club business, Mike Huggins showed the club the new sign for the Lafayette Children's Museum Bubble Exhibit that our club has sponsored for many years. The old sign was small and hidden and the Board approved the purchase of a new sign to be placed in a more prominent location.
Thanks, Mike and well done!
