McComb- Veazey’s first Local Legends Wall and the 12th & Surrey LIVE was made possible by the Creativity Everywhere Grant from Downtown Lafayette. The Coterie worked with artist Adrian Fulton (shown in photo) to recognize nine of our local legends.
The Historic Preservation Project is an opportunity for the community to recognize people and locations within the neighborhood of significant historic value. To date, 4 historic markers have been installed across the community. Locations: Immaculate Heart of Mary, 12th St; The African American Mardi Gras, 14th and S. Magnolia St; Helma Constantine, 11th St and House of Faith, Jefferson St.
Funds received through the McComb- Veazey Neighborhood Revitalization Fund will be used to invest in community projects that are designed to improve the quality of life, livability, and functionality of the McComb- Veazey neighborhood and its residents. Targeted investment in public facilities such as the construction, reconstruction or rehabilitation of public infrastructure in McComb- Veazey will support neighborhood revitalization, economic development and crime reduction programs.
