LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Despite the recent adoption of new zoning regulations, Lafayette officials are still allowing salvage yards to operate within city limits - at least for now.

The Advertiser reports (http://bit.ly/1GVJRCt ) the city’s unified development code was adopted by the Lafayette City-Parish Council in March and initially called for junkyards to be phased out over the course of four years.

But because of a discrepancy about what qualifies as junk, officials have held off on forcing certain businesses to move out of the city.

The purpose of the development code is to simplify regulations by making them clearer for developers in the metro area.

The unified development code is set to go into effect in December.
