WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A popular campus bar could get a new home this fall.
The plan for a 20,000 square-foot development at State Street and Northwestern Avenue originally had Where Else? bar moving to the basement of the facility.
But the Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commission recommended approval for a new plan which calls for a restaurant to go in the basement instead.
The city of West Lafayette petitioned the developer against the idea of the bar going in the basement because of safety concerns.
"We realize that if you put a bar in an underground location that the potential for a hazard and a hazard pretty readily presents itself there. There is a high concentration of students, they're drinking it's just an accident waiting to happen," said West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis.
Where Else? bar could move across the street to Chauncey Village.
Food Finders unveiled a new online fundraising challenge that could raise an additional $40,000 towards feeding the hungry.
It was almost a year ago when Frankfort Police Chief Troy Bacon asked residents to report anything suspicious they see, especially drugs.
Pride Lafayette Inc. is commending the mayors of Lafayette and West Lafayette for their stance against a proposed constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. But other major community entities have yet to take a stand for or against it.
