Over the previous 3 months, three Purdue University Landscape Architecture students have been working on a project regarding the Traders Point Triangle area, an area ranging from Lafayette Road on the south to Hunt Club Road on the north. Their main objective is to provide the community, its leaders and potential developers with an insight to what Traders Point could and should be, paying respect to the natural and historic character of the area. They are working under the belief that the need for preservation and smart growth of the land is apparent as valued open space and woodlands are rapidly giving way to suburban sprawl. Two of the students are local, one from Zionsville and one from Traders Point, and therefore have a vested interest in the area!
The students will be sharing their findings/presentation with us at The Creamery at 6:30pm on Tuesday, April 29th. The presentation is titled “Preservation Methods, Comprehensive Planning & Establishing Community Identity”. Please join them for this hour presentation. They have worked long and hard and it would be great to encourage continued support and new ideas from the next generation! Some of their “Context and Goals” posters are currently on display at The Creamery.
See you then!
