June 14, 2021 - The City of Fort Wayne’s Community Development Division and the Southeast Area Partnership is seeking public input from people who reside in southeast area neighborhoods.

Please join us for a series of public meetings to share your thoughts and ideas for McKinnie Commons located at the corner of South Anthony Boulevard and McKinnie Avenue and Powell Park located at the corner of Pontiac Streetand Weisser Park Avenue.

Residents have two opportunities to participate in community meetings which will be held at the Renaissance Pointe YMCA located at 2323 Bowser Avenue.

People interested may attend public input sessions for McKinnie Commons on Tuesday June 15th at 8:00 p.m. or Wednesday June 23 at 6:30 p.m.

Sessions for Powell Park will be hosted Tuesday June 15th at 6:30 p.m. or Wednesday June 23rd at 8:00 p.m. Each session will include the same information. Those interested only need to attend one session. If you are unable to attend in person, an online survey will be available in the coming week. He can be found here. Once the concepts are approved ground breaking could begin by the end of this year.

These are just two projects identified in the Southeast Strategy Update which is a comprehensive sub-area plan focused on reinvesting in Fort Wayne’s southeast quadrant of the City.

This initiative was developed by the City of Fort Wayne’s Community Development Division with the guidance and direction from southeast leaders, the plan provides strategies for investing in commercial and housing growth, building community, and improving the quality of life for southeast residents.
