WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Wabash Landing along State Street has undergone a major facelift but one problem sticks out to some people: the amount of handicapped parking.

"My concern is they take them away and then it's harder for people with disabilities to get to where they need to be," said Cathy Coller.

Wabash Landing handicapped parking

Coller was born with a form of cerebral palsy. You'll never hear her complain about her disability, but taking parking spots away is frustrating for her.

As of right now, Wabash Landing has two handicap spots, and are both located at the end of the parking lot.

"It hurts to walk farther than I would like to," said Coller. "In the summertime, it is harder because in the heat."

Tim Clark is the facilities director for West Lafayette. He says this issue is extremely important to him.

"We are working on the disability spots as we speak with our consultant for the city on the spots that are down there," said Clark. "So we are going to move spots down, basically in front of Panera and Moes, and add a couple spaces as well."

There will soon be street parking added along state street. That is expected to open on or before Nov. 30.
