Mayor-President Josh Guillory’s administration recently opened the Heymann Performing Arts Center to an appraisal by Lafayette General Health, according to records obtained by The Daily Advertiser and interviews.

In what was a closely guarded secret at City Hall, Lafayette Consolidated Government employees worked to fill a “confidential request” on Lafayette General’s behalf for information about the building’s condition and any legal hurdles on the donated land where it stands next door to Lafayette General Medical Center on South College Road.

The land that the Heymann Center sits on amounts to 7 acres of commercial property directly beside Lafayette General Medical Center on the edge of Lafayette’s Oil Center.
