Northern Reach Schematic Design
The Wabash River Enhancement Corporation (WREC) and our community partners have completed an update of the Northern Reach section of the Two Cities, One River Master Plan. This update was initiated when the City of Lafayette Municipal Golf Course was retired from active use. Due to the prominence of the golf course in the area, its closure provided an opportunity to re-envision the entire Northern Reach.
WREC retained Rundell Ernstberger Associates (REA) to guide WREC and our partners through the planning process. The Northern Reach Schematic Design was funded by North Central Health Services, WREC, the Cities of Lafayette and West Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, and the National Realtors' Association. Planning began in May 2015 when REA completed a resource inventory. In November 2015, REA, WREC, and our partners held conceptual design meetings focused on capturing community input. The final public presentation of the schematic design was held in May 2016.
