30 acres in St. Joseph, Milan townships become part of Fort Wayne March 31

Approximately 30 acres in St. Joseph and Milan townships will become part of the City of Fort Wayne at 12:01 a.m. Monday, March 31, as part of a voluntary annexation approved by Fort Wayne City Council in November 2007.

The annexation area is bounded by Stellhorn Road to the south and west, Schwartz Road to the west, the Norfolk & Southern Railroad and Korte Electric'€™s property line to the east and another owner'€™s property line north of Stellhorn. The area will begin to receive City services immediately, including police and fire protection as well as garbage and recycling pickup.

Mayor Tom Henry sent letters to property owners this week welcoming them to the City. An accompanying resource packet included information about City services, City contact information and a map of the area.

A map of the annexation area is available here.
