WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Many neighbors living along Lindberg Road from Northwestern to Salisbury were at a planning meeting Monday night. They had the opportunity to voice their concerns and opinions about the future of their neighborhood.

Initial plans for the road include widening the sidewalks and complying with ADA regulations. Storm and sanitary pipes will also be separated. That will reduce pollution in the Wabash River.

Many community members voiced concern over how much yard space the project would take.

City leaders and neighbors were happy with how the meeting went.

Al Parker has lived on Lindberg for over 50 years. He said the meeting was productive. 

"It's meetings like this that really matter. You're at a place where you can sit down and discuss it," said Parker. 

Erik Carlson is the Director of Development for the City of West Lafayette. He said having a great turnout means gathering more input.

"This gives us at the city an opportunity to take their feedback and go as we go for the next steps of what the design is going to be, what should we alter, what alter, what should we eliminate, what should we add," said Carlson. 

The city plans on starting construction in the spring of 2020. They hope to have the project completed around August of that same year.

No concrete plans have been made concerning the design of the project.
