Scott growth lawsraising possibilities of zoning

Posted: Updated:

SCOTT, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Scott City Council is set to consider new regulations next month that, for the first time in Scott, would spell out what can be built where.

The move is in line with a trend seen throughout Lafayette Parish.

In the past five years, new zoning laws or land-use codes have been implemented in Carencro, Broussard, Youngsville and the rural areas of the parish.

The proposed regulations in Scott have been under discussion for more than a year and were approved last week by the city's Planning Commission, which sent them along to the City Council for final approval.

Planning director Pat Logan says some developments, such as new mobile home parks and dirt pits, would be banned outright.
