WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — West Lafayette is another step closer to a new Indoor Recreation and Aquatic Center.

A presentation held at the Morton Center Wednesday night gave the public an idea of what might go in the proposed 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 presented three different options. One with multiple pools, one without and a hybrid option with smaller aquatic facilities.

The estimated cost could be anywhere from $26 to $37 dollars.

Mayor John Dennis said this is just a preliminary idea of what would work best in the community.

"I want to make sure that what we do, we do with the understanding that we're going to be able to make ends meet," he said. "We don't want to get into a great deal of debt and not be able to generate the revenue to pay for that debt."

A final plan for the project will be presented sometime in April.
