Carlee Alm-LaBar, Director of the Development and Planning Department for Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG), has accepted a position in the private sector and will conclude her eight year tenure in local government in June of this year.

Appointed by Mayor-President Joel Robideaux in January 2016 as the head of Development and Planning, Alm-LaBar is responsible for the coordination of development issues in the City and unincorporated Parish of Lafayette.

“Carlee’s dedication, commitment to excellence and insight have been invaluable to my Administration,” stated Robideaux. “I’m grateful for her leadership within government and for her service to the citizens of Lafayette Parish. She will certainly be missed and we all wish her the very best in her next endeavor.”

“I am grateful to Mayor-President Robideaux and the entire Administration, the City-Parish Council, and the LCG team as a whole, especially my staff, for the last few years. I have loved my time working in the public sector. I have learned a great deal both from residents and colleagues about how our community works. I look forward to a new adventure and supporting our community in this new capacity.”

Prior to her term as the Planning and Development Director, Alm-LaBar served as Chief Development Officer and as an assistant to former City-Parish President Joey Durel.

Alm-LaBar will be joining Southern Lifestyle Development as the Director of Planning for Traditional Neighborhood Developments, leading development of mixed-use neighborhoods in Louisiana and Mississippi.
