Knowledge-Based, Data-Driven

The Acadiana Planning Commission (APC) — Louisiana Planning District 4 — serves the public sector in the planning and implementation of economic, community, and transportation development throughout the region known as Acadiana, including the Louisiana Parishes of Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, and Vermilion.

APC is one of the highest-performing agencies in the country because we use knowledge, experience, and data to facilitate, elevate, and push the envelope. Our goal is to forge a space for creative solutions through collaborations and core values to implement development at the highest level possible.
