DOWNTOWN RIVERFRONT TEAM BEGINS WORK
Fort Wayne, Ind. – The first comprehensive look at Fort Wayne's riverfront development possibilities is now underway. The Downtown Riverfront Development team led by SWA Group is in Fort Wayne for three days to meet with City staff and community leaders.
“We are excited to get the study underway,” said Deputy Director of Planning and Policy Pam Holocher. “The purpose of the study is to look at all the opportunities and challenges that are part of riverfront development. From there, we’ll ask citizens what they want to see along our rivers and create a specific plan for action.”
The Downtown Riverfront Development Study is intended to provide the road map for a world-class investment. Areas of focus will include land use; engineering and infrastructure investment; environmental and ecological issues; watershed and flooding issues; connectivity to trails, downtown and nearby neighborhoods; access to the river; retail; entertainment; and housing.
