WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — West Lafayette is planning far ahead for a project that could mean big financial gains for the city and Purdue.

The City Council is in the process of approving a project that will span a few decades. The city is partnering with Purdue to expand the west end of campus toward U.S. 231.

The development will include new living space and academic buildings. West Lafayette also plans to welcome a business district on the west side of U.S. 231. As it stands, the project could nearly double the city's revenue.

The city plans to gather input and information over the next few months. The project could cost upwards of 107 million dollars.
