We were contacted by Bradley Oppenheim from Greater Lafayette Magazine regarding a story about the New Chauncey Historic District turning 10 years old. The survey of his questions are linked below. He would like responses in by the May 20th.
We know the New Chauncey neighborhood’s view on the historic district is as varied as the residents themselves and would appreciate hearing your perspective.
The article will be printed and therefore you must include your name and a method of contact in the event that Bradley wants to follow-up.
Feel free to answer as many questions as you want.
Did you know that the daylily image on our New Chauncey street signs represents the Stella d’Oro daylilies in our intersection gardens?
Our daylily garden corners have been growing for many years in the New Chauncey Neighborhood. They were started with private funds and labor with the city’s permission. Over the years, pedestrian traffic, lawn mowers and other factors have caused us to lose some of the garden plots. At present we have daylily garden plots located at 7 intersections in the neighborhood.
A commitment from a few more dedicated residents can help ensure that the plots we have can thrive. The job involves tending one or more corner gardens during the growing season, pulling out weeds and keeping the gardens looking their best. On average, each small garden may need 15-20 minutes of attention every 2 weeks during the growing season. “Time-sharing” a garden between neighbors is fine if needed.
If you have questions or would like to help during the 2023 growing season, please call Carl Griffin at 765-743-8087. Funds are also needed and welcome for purchasing new plant stock for some of the gardens.

From the City’s Website: The City of West Lafayette and Purdue created the Joint Board in order to provide a consistent and equitable mechanism to address issues that arise in the future regarding this Interlocal Cooperation Agreement and its interpretation and implementation, as well as the implementation of the Annexation.
