Terre Haute Wants New Name For Community Center

The city wants to change the name of the Charles T. Hyte Community Center, but cannot come to an agreement with the center's board.

Terre Haute’s Human Relations Commission will function as a mediator between the city and the Charles T. Hyte Community Center board. At a press conference Tuesday, commission director Jeff Laurec said it was time to stop fighting about the center. City communication director Peter Ciancone says the commission will serve as a clearinghouse for suggestions from the community on one disputed issue: the center’s name. He says recent arguments between the city and the center’s board over the name should be settled by the residents of Terre Haute.

Ciancone says if the community’s preference is to find a new name, that recommendation will be made. He says the city could have a recommendation from the commission within about a month.
