LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Faith Community Development Corporation is working with several community partners to create a multimillion-dollar community center on the city’s north end.

The finished center is expected to provide a new home for the Hanna Community Center, Meals on Wheels, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Senior Center and more.

The 114,000-square-foot project will be called the Northend Community Center. It’s expected to break ground just west of Market Square this summer and be completed by summer 2018.

The project will be a public-private collaboration. FCDC and the city of Lafayette are inviting members of the north end community to two public forums for more information.

The first meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at Vinton Elementary School — 3101 Elmwood Ave. The second is at noon on Thursday, Feb. 23, in Carnahan Hall — 800 Main St. The forums will be facilitated by United Way of Greater Lafayette and the city of Lafayette.
