The Action Cœur de Ville plan aims to revitalise 222 municipalities, with a focus on improving living conditions and enhancing the architectural, landscape and urban heritage of these communities. Lafayette was among the three agencies selected by the commune of Vernon. Working to redevelop public spaces around the town center, the design employs low-carbon materials, enhances mobility, and creates an adaptable space, supportive of community events. The inhabitants were consulted via an unprecedented electronic vote in which one-third of the population participated.
