WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Several people attended a public presentation for the future of City Hall at the Morton Center Wednesday night.

At the meeting, city planners talked through the advantages and disadvantages of each site option.

The three possibilities are the Morton Center, land near the future home of West Lafayette's Recreation Center and the site of the former city hall.

City planners also answered questions from the community members who attended

The question and answer session was focused a lot on the potential of the Morton Center being chosen as the building site.

Sue Frederick has lived in West Lafayette for almost 50 years.

Frederick said she attended the meeting tonight because she wants to be informed.

"I didn't care where city hall was located, I probably haven't been to city hall once in the past three years," Frederick said. "I do care how my taxes are spent. The Morton school is far, in a way, a better use of taxpayers money."

The final report for the site options will be submitted on June 20th, which is the next scheduled meeting for the redevelopment commission.

At Wednesday's meeting, Director of Development Erik Carlson mentioned that even if the Morton Community Center is not chosen for this project, plans are still set for the building to be renovated.
