WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- The city of West Lafayette is comparing notes with the public on its proposed indoor Recreation and Aquatic Center.

The facility would go up at Salisbury Street and Kalberer Road.

It could include an olympic sized pool, weight room, and basketball courts.

The Viability Study team presented their ideas Wednesday night with a question and answer session.

Dozens of community members attended, and many spoke out with concerns for the project.

Resident Jan Myers said she has mixed feelings about the project, but wants it to be inclusive.

"Obviously having round feet, that's what I refer to by being in a wheelchair, I'm very concerned that the center be universal in its design so that it's inclusive for anyone," Myers said. 

One widespread concern was how the center could affect the community garden at Cumberland Park.

The plans are to expand the garden by one-third of its current size.
