UPDATE 2017-12-08: From a reliable source, there are community meetings planned for February of 2018 regarding the new City Hall.
Discussion is starting about building a new City Hall. This fall’s viability study will help us define: 1) what it should include, 2) where to put it, and 3) affordability. One of the most critical components is having my department heads under one roof again. Although the Morton Center has served us as a stopgap measure, the 89-yearold building is somewhat dysfunctional for hosting meetings because of aging sound systems, acoustics, seating, and lack of appropriate security. In our public meetings, we want your input on what features are important to you as well as suggestions about where to place City Hall. Both viability studies will be completed by next spring. Construction wouldn’t start until 2019 at the earliest. – from Mayor Dennis in the 2017 West Lafayette Connection Newsletter
Now is the time to contact the Mayor, on the record, about what you want to see for City Hall in West Lafayette. Compounded by the possible construction of a new Recreation and Aquatic Center, the future of Morton is unknown.
I am trying to see if I received the feasibility study from the former Director of Development, Chandler Poole, back in 2013, before the Dennis Administration moved Development, Engineering, and the Mayor’s Office into Morton. If I have it in my archives, I will post a link here.
Where do you want to see the new West Lafayette City Hall? What functions do you want it to serve? Don’t be shy. Share your thoughts.
