As West Lafayette’s redesign of State Street gets going in earnest, there are still more questions than answers.

What does a public-private partnership actually do for the city?

Is the collegiate feel of the area in danger?

And what does the city have to give up to the University to get it to fork over so much cash?

During this week’s discussion with West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis, we ask if he sees the State Street project as his legacy as the city’s leader.

Also some questions from listeners, including ones about how citizens can be involved in the city’s strategic planning and where city hall might end up.
