TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Plans to add an aquatic center to the West Lafayette Junior-Senior High School moved forward Wednesday.

As News 18 has reported, the plans are part of the district's facility upgrades.

A multi-purpose aquatic center will be added to the existing building.

Attorneys were before the Board of Zoning Appeals Wednesday, requesting variances for the project. The variances addressed issues, including parking and building coverage.

"They're going to add on a new aquatics center. It will replace the existing pool - about 19,000 square feet and that required us to request 2-3 different variances," said Kevin Riley.

In other news, the BZA voted down a special exception for a proposed cell tower on Lafayette's south side. There were concerns about the tower's proximity to a radio group, located along South 18th Street.
