LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Community members believe public safety is an issue for a subdivsion approved at Area Plan Commission tonight.
Timberbrook Meadows will sit on 60 acres of land and include 165 homes.
It's on the south side of CR 600 N within a mile of Harrison High School.
Community members said there are too many houses being built near Harrison meaning less first responders available.
Once the developer meets all necessary requirements then area plan commission passes the subdivision.
Noel Charshe is okay with the neighborhood, but wished it'd be built with safety in mind.
"When it comes to these very very large subdivisions the issue really is about the roads," said Charshe. "Are they safe? Are the subdivision roads themselves safe? On top of that the fire safety issue as well as the sheriffs. Our sheriff's department is severely understaffed."
The developer was not at the meeting Wednesday night.
Also the West Lafayette downtown plan is moving to the West Lafayette City Council for final approval.
It was approved at Wednesday night's area plan commission meeting.
The idea is to connect the Chauncey Village area and Levee to downtown Lafayette.
There have been multiple public hearings to discuss the future of West Lafayette.
West Lafayette city council will vote on this Monday, February 3rd at 6:30 p.m.
