WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — West Lafayette community members are making sure their voices are heard when it comes to the future of their city.
The area plan commission hosted an open forum to discuss preliminary plans for the future of downtown West Lafayette.
The assistant director of APC gave a presentation to a packed room in the West Lafayette Public Library and then hosted a Q&A.
Initial plans lean toward what they described as a less suburban approach.
They're considering a more traditional downtown including a grid-like street system.
A West Lafayette neighbor said he is on board with whatever city leaders choose to do, but he likes how the community is now.
"It's just a very peaceful and comfortable place to live," said Eric Lin. "It's pretty inclusive and diverse and there's a lot of opportunities to do whatever it is you want to do."
This plan covers Chauncey Hill to the river between Tapawingo Park and Robinson Street.
It's far from being complete.
There will be at least two other public meetings about the plans.
