Plans are to place the recreational center on the southwest corner of Kalberer and Salisbury on the North side of town. The city is proposing a $25 million budget.

Four million of that will go to essential infrastructure including water lines. Director of Development Erik Carlson said the finances are taken care of, but the design of the building is what will keep the community coming back.

"This is something that has come out as one of our top responses on parks masterplans," said Carlson. "Our parks department every five years puts out a master plan, and for the last few master plans, so that means over a couple of decades we've heard the citizens of West Lafayette say 'we want a recreation center.'"

The city will compile the information and take the responses into consideration before building. Once all the information is gathered the city will develop a timeline for the project.
