LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Plans are in the works to link three major areas in Lafayette, you may remember the city studying the Five Points neighborhood and the Columbian Park neighborhood.
That was all part of a larger plan to connect the two areas to downtown.
Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski said the city's plan is to build a corridor that begins downtown on Main Street.
The infrastructure will make it easier for people to walk from downtown to the Five Points neighborhood and to Columbian Park.
Roswarski is confident if the city does its part, the interest in investment will continue to grow.
"We're not going to build housing, we aren't going to build restaurants, we are trying to put the infrastructure and amenities in place that government should be involved with and we are hoping the private sector will come in and do the rest," said Roswarski.
He said the corridor will be especially positive for development in the Five Points neighborhood, because it is right between Loeb Stadium and downtown.
