WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The West Lafayette city council will take up several topics Monday, including proposals for two new developments.

One thing the council is not doing is taking a second and final vote on the city’s classification. As News 18 has already reported, after the recent annex, the city can move up in size from a Class 3 to a Class 2 city because it has more than 35,000 residents.

Council President Ann Hunt said the council needs to see more numbers and data from the census.

“If it does pass on the second reading, we’ll need to do some redistricting and there’s some criteria for doing redistricting as far as equality in numbers and districts,” said Hunt.

The council is slated to vote on a proposed adult daycare at the northwest corner of Salisbury Street and Lindberg Road. It would use both the existing building and add on additional space to house 20-25 adults with Alzheimer’s Disease, autism or other issues so their caregivers can go to work or run other errands.

The council will also be introduced to the South Street Station proposal, a 4-story, 40-unit, 70-bedroom development slated for the intersection at South and Salisbury. A first vote is likely for next month, after the Area Plan Commission provides a recommendation. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
