Faith Church Presents Mixed Use Complex Details


West Lafayette residents are getting a better understanding of a proposed $10-million mixed use development along Northwestern Avenue between Lindberg Road and Windsor Drive.

Faith Church is putting together plans for the project which would include a community center, apartments, and a restaurant and presented them during a public meeting Thursday night.

Pastor Steve Viars  says the development aims at meeting multiple needs of members of the community.

Engineer Joe Blake says community input has been important in putting together designs for the facility.

Faith Church expects to formally present plans to the Tippecanoe Area Plan Commission for a vote by March.

Viars says if approved, it will go to the West Lafayette city council for a vote in April. 

He hopes if there are no problems getting plans passed by the two government bodies, construction could start this summer and have the 90,000 square-foot development open by next year.

Because Faith is considered a charitable organization, Viars believes it will be exempt from property taxes.
