WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Sections of two West Lafayette streets could transform into a space for pedestrians.
The city wants to create a small park or plaza space on South Street between Northwestern and Chauncey avenues. Another space could be added on Chauncey between North and Columbia.
The city wants it to be traffic free spaces for people to congregate.
The redevelopment commission approved a request for a design proposal Wednesday.
Deputy Development Director Erin Easter said part of that process involves getting community input.
"We want to go through the community listening process and understand what that space can be, what it can look like, what improvements we can make and make that a nice gift back to the community," she said.
Easter said the design process won't be complete until July, and construction would not start until sometime in 2020 or 2021.
