TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Greater Lafayette Commerce held its first quarterly development series meeting today.
The meeting featured mayors John Dennis and Tony Roswarski. They discussed the state of Lafayette and West Lafayette.
County Commissioner David Byers spoke about Tippecanoe County as a whole. Several projects were started or completed during 2018, including the restore Sagamore project, work on the courthouse and beginning renovations on the county fairgrounds.
Byers links last year's growth to the work between both cities. "It's a community that's working together. I think that is the easiest way to say it. We're all interested and we're all in it together. Yeah, you may have two different cities in one county but we're all in the same pot,” said Byers.
Byers said the county's success would be possible without the help of local businesses. "They take pride in their community is what they're doing. They're trying to give back too the same way,” said Byers.
The county has plans to complete ventilation work and create new a court room in the courthouse this year. The second phase in the fairgrounds project is also set to start later this year.
