The Freetown-Port Rico Coterie was established in 2006, and is currently incorporating as a non-profit organization. Its 12 member board is comprised of residents and business owners within the neighborhoods. A simple definition of a Coterie would be:
"an elected group of neighbors who join together to create plans
and solve challenges that benefit the neighborhood."
Engage our Residents & Businesses
Every resident, renter, business and property owner is welcome to join our meetings to discuss making the Freetown-Port Rico neighborhood even better. We want to hear from you!
Implement our Neighborhood Plan
Lafayette Consolidated Government adopted the Freetown-Port Rico neighborhood plan in 2006. This plan includes many goals and projects which the Coterie helps to focus residents' energy on accomplishing.
The Freetown-Port Rico Coterie represents the residents and businesses within the boundaries below, between Pinhook Road, University Avenue, Johnston Street, and the Evangeline Thruway.
Our monthly public meetings are held at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Maison Creole de Freetown, 800 E. Vermilion Street.
