WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Area planners have a vision for the area around US 231 in West Lafayette, and now they're paving the way for it to become a reality.

Area Plan Commission approved a number of zoning changes in a vote on Wednesday. This is in line with a land use plan the city council passed back in 2016 that gave the city more control over the area. 

Since then the city, county, landowners and residents have been working together. 

Director of Development Eric Carlson said all of the open land around 231 has sparked interest from developers of all kinds.

"This makes it so the next year, five years, ten years, twenty years down the road development is done with overall comprehensive plan in mind.Things will make sense so what you're putting next to each other blends in well and works well together," said Carlson. 

The next step is for the city council to approve the re-zone plans at the November meeting.
