Historic Preservation Commission

City of Frankfort

For the third time in two years, a Frankfort police officer has left his post due to bad behavior off the clock. That’s an amount equal to an entire shift of patrolmen under the current scheme. So is it time for stronger words and actions from department leadership?

The Lafayette City Council Monday approved the first reading of a new ordinance aimed at preserving the city’s remaining brick streets.

The ordinance would require the city to re-pave and restore brick streets with brick, rather than concrete or asphalt.

Only nine stretches of brick street remain in Lafayette, mostly clustered around downtown and in the city’s Southwestern Highland Park neighborhood.

WL finalizing historic ordinance

Sep 7, 2012

West Lafayette is nearing completion of its Historic Neighborhoods Ordinance.

A 12 member group has worked on the document for about a year.

Director of Development Chandler Poole, who serves on the panel, says it’s about 95-percent finished.

He hopes to have the ordinance presented to the city council by the end of the year.

The city council created the historic commission last year with mixed support.

Those against the idea believe a historical preservation ordinance will take away individual property owner rights.
