WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Business seems to be booming for the area west of West Lafayette. Several new businesses have opened along U.S. 52, near U.S. 231.

"We've been here for the past 14 months," said Martha Minier, owner of 212 Salon, Spa, & Barbershop.

It wasn't an easy decision for Minier to move her hair salon from Fowler to Tippecanoe County.

"It just gave us a little more opportunity for our team to grow their business," said Minier.

Now located on U.S. 52 and near U.S 231, Minier said it's been a good transition.

"Because of all the small communities around us -- the Klondike area, a lot of the Lindberg area is coming and their whole families are coming and that was our goal to make it easy for guests to come in," said Minier.

The salon isn't the only business to pop up in that area. Businesses, including Starbucks and Dollar Tree, have recently opened.

"Largely that's due to 231. You know, there's a lot of residential growth and now we're seeing the commercial growth that's following it," said Tom Murtaugh, a county commissioner.

Murtaugh said there have been several requests for rezones. He expects the growth to continue as the county works to redo Klondike Road.

"It's a 4-lane project with a trail on one side and a sidewalk on the other. Then also in a couple years, Lindberg will be completely redone," said Murtaugh.

It's growth Minier welcomes.

"The movers and shakers in our community are listening to what this side of the community is looking for. So, maybe a few more good restaurants would be nice," said Minier.
