TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A Wabash Valley group is disappointed with the selection of the new jail site.

Riverscape wants to revitalize the area along the Wabash River.

We spoke with Charlie Wiliams of Riverscape.

He says putting the jail riverside hurts their vision for the riverfront.

“Who’s going to want to be there next to the jail? We’ve already heard from the Aquatic Center and other important voices,” Williams said.

He went on to add the Riverscape board plans to meet soon and will elaborate further on their position on the jail’s location.
