WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - This week you'll find a team of designers, planners and architects all trying to form a vision for the future of Chauncey Village at the former University Spirit store. However, it's not just their vision. 

Back in May, Trinitas Ventures announced they are tearing down the mall and rebuilding a new complex, and what it will include is up to the community. Some of the suggestions from the public include building a public space for concerts, banquets or big gatherings.
Others would like to see a grocery store.

Designers are now taking those suggestions and forming some blue prints, but it doesn't come without a challenge.

"I think to make it a beautiful, wonderful high performing space, yes it's a challenge," said Neal Payton, leader of the design team. "But we also have a lot to work with here."

The rest of the week, people can stop in at the former University Spirit store for a public workshop from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday and Friday. Then on Thursday you can go from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

There will also be two public presentations on Wednesday and Friday night at 6 p.m.
