Here is a the presentation slide deck from the WLCSC Facilities Strategic Plan Presentation on May 17th, 2016.
It’s that time of year to get your yard and house ready for spring. This year’s BoilerBlast will be held on April 9th, 2016 from 8am – 12pm.
If you are unfamiliar with this program, it is an opportunity for residents and Purdue students to work together to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods, parks, and around our homes.
Some example activities include:
- Light yard work
- Garage cleanout
- Window cleaning
- Garden care
- Gutters (if ladders are provided)
If you would like to work with Purdue students to help you prepare for spring, please signup online. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis so sign-up now.
We are also working with the Civic Engagement and Leadership Development group to also help clean-up our streets, sidewalks, and parks.
You can also visit the BoilerBlast 2016 web site for more information.
Lincoln Park recently received two new additions.
The West Lafayette Public Library has placed a book return at the park. This drop box can be used to return any WLPL material. The book return is now available for use and will receive a permanent West Lafayette library sign in the near future.
Another new West Lafayette library drop box can be found at Lommel Park, located in the Barbarry Heights neighborhood. For any questions regarding the Lincoln and Lommel Park drop boxes contact the West Lafayette Public Library at 765-743-2261.
Lincoln Park also now features a Little Free Library, adding to the many already in our neighborhood and around the city. This free book exchange is available to all.
The other two in New Chauncey are on Rose St. near the Happy Hollow Park entrance and in front of New Chauncey Housing on Littleton St.
Due to inclement weather, the Multi-Neighborhood Garage Sale has been postponed.
One of our fellow neighbors in Salisbury Heights organized a community wide garage sale for Saturday, May 9, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM.

I just received this information from Ryan O’Gara at the Tippecanoe Area Planning Commission:
Please join the staff of the Area Plan Commission and the New Chauncey Neighborhood Steering
Committee for two meetings:
• Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 7pm at the West Lafayette Public Library: this meeting will serve as an introduction to the rezone proposal.
• Wednesday, April 1, 2015, following the Executive Committee meeting at 4:30 pm, in the Tippecanoe Room of the Tippecanoe County Office Building, 20 N. Third Street, Lafayette: Staff will present the proposed zoning map to the Ordinance Committee of the Area Plan Commission in a public hearing format.
From their letter:
On behalf of the Area Plan Commission of Tippecanoe County and the New Chauncey Neighborhood Steering Committee, we are pleased to present a new zoning proposal based on the adopted 2013 New Chauncey Neighborhood Plan. A copy of both the existing zoning and the proposed zoning for the neighborhood is enclosed.
This first of two steps in achieving the future land use vision recommended by the Plan would bring the neighborhood, utilizing existing zoning districts available in the Unified Zoning Ordinance, into closer conformity with the neighborhood land use plan. If this first step is adopted by the West Lafayette City Council, step 2 will follow creating “form-based” zoning applied as an “overlay” on the zoning map adopted in step 1. Step 2 will bring the neighborhood into complete conformance with the adopted land use plan. More details on this second step will follow later as this zoning process unfolds.
Additional Ordinance Committee meetings may be necessary and if so, meeting times will be decided at the end of the April 1st meeting. If you are unable to attend either meeting, please contact the APC office for information regarding future meetings. You may also send written comments to the APC office or via email to email@example.com.
The Ordinance Committee members will review the proposed map, take public comment, work out any necessary compromises, and then send a zoning proposal for the neighborhood to the full Area Plan Commission at a public hearing. APC’s vote at that hearing will serve as a recommendation to the West Lafayette City Council, which ultimately decides zoning issues. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
UPDATE: Thank you everyone who made it out last night! What a great assortment of soups and desserts to share with friends, family, and neighbors.
Tami does a magnificent job each and every year organizing the event, The Bum Ditty Barn Dance Band brings the house down with their music, and Barry keeps us all in line (or in circles) with his calling. See you out in the neighborhood.
Join friends, family, and neighbors January 30th, 2015 from 6-8PM at the Morton Community Center’s auditorium.
The entertainment will include LIVE MUSIC and family-oriented square dancing for all. You don’t have to square dance if you don’t want to, but we know we’re going to have fun at it (even though most of us are only beginners)!
The cost is $5 per individual/$15 per family OR bring (soup), (bread/butter/cornbread/rolls), (a fruit/veggie tray), or (dessert) to serve 10 people.
Drinks and paper goods provided. Along with power strips for the soup (if you’re bringing a crockpot).
If you looked out your window or went for a walk around our neighborhood on the morning of Saturday, April 5th, you would have seen dozens of Purdue students (thanks to the Civic Engagement and Leadership Development), working alongside neighbors, to get the streets, sidewalks, yards, and alleys in a better state for the upcoming Spring season.
One component that weekend was the annual CleanSweep program. We picked up over 21 bags of garbage (thank you Jeff for the truck!) and thanks to the West Lafayette Street and Sanitation Department, we disposed of them safely.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this neighborhood collaboration with Purdue University and the City a huge success.
We are working with the team at Purdue to make it even better. If you have any thoughts, please send them our way.
