The City of New Iberia is requesting your input to generate project ideas to be included in the new Project Development Studies for each city district. Proposed projects should address a community need by focusing on quality of life enhancements, public safety improvements, economic development, tourism opportunities, etc. Proposed projects must be located on property owned or controlled by the city; for example: public parks, streets, right of ways, sidewalks, public/private partnerships, etc. – no private property. The projects must also be built elements or improvements; for example: park improvements, signage, existing building upgrades, new facilities, landscaping, public art, etc. – no events, festivals, activities, etc. After completion of the public input period, up to 10 projects will be selected for each city district’s Project Development Study. Project selection will be prioritized based on feasibility, community impact, shovel readiness, realistic timelines, maintenance, etc. The goal of these Project Development Studies is to pursue achievable built improvements within the city’s financial range to capitalize on funding opportunities (government programs, grants, etc.) and to leverage the city’s dollars to spread further throughout the entire city. Please join us to do everything we can to better our city together.
Please complete and return the Public Survey Form by APRIL 1, 2020 for consideration of your ideas to be included in the Project Development Studies. Completed forms may be sent to the following:

THE RETURN OF THE NEW IBERIA POLICE DEPARTMENT
The New Iberia Police Department officially began patrolling the streets of New Iberia on Sunday July 1st, 2018 at 6:00 AM.
The newly formed police department was reinstated after city residents approved a measure to create a funding source in 2017. For nearly a decade prior, law enforcement was provided for city residents through a contract with the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Department.
The department was officially sworn in on June 19th on the front steps of the New Iberia City Hall.
