October 10, 2022 - Allen County and the City of Fort Wayne will conduct a joint Plan Commission Public Hearing on the All In Allen Comprehensive Plan. At the hearing, a summary of the final draft plan will be presented and the public will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback before the plan moves on to final adoption.

The Joint Plan Commission Public Hearing will be held on Wednesday, October 26, at 6 p.m. in the Omni Room (Room 045) of Citizens Square at 200 East Berry Street in Fort Wayne. The County and City Plan Commissions will make their final recommendations on the plan at their regularly scheduled Business Meetings in November. Final plan adoption is anticipated for December for Allen County and the City of Fort Wayne, and beginning in January 2023 for the communities of Grabill, Huntertown, Monroeville and Woodburn.

The adoption draft of the Plan is available on the All In Allen website at www.ALLINALLEN.org. Printed versions of the plan are also available for review in the City of Fort Wayne Community Development and the Allen County Department of Planning Services offices in Citizens Square (200 East Berry Street, Fort Wayne).

“We are excited to be in the final stages of the comprehensive plan process,” says Connie Haas Zuber, President of the Fort Wayne Plan Commission. “We look forward to a new plan with fresh ideas to guide growth and development in the community.”

Allen County Plan Commission President Susie Hoot agrees, “We have a lot of positive momentum in Allen County, and this plan will help us align on goals and policies to continue to capitalize on that momentum over the next 20 years.”

This adoption draft plan represents a significant milestone in the All In Allen Comprehensive Plan process. The Planning process which began in February 2020 has been guided by feedback obtained from analysis of existing conditions, extensive community outreach, and community visioning to ensure the Plan is reflective of the communities it will serve.

The All In Allen Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint to guide land use, housing, transportation, parks, and more for Fort Wayne and Allen County and the communities Grabill, Huntertown, Monroeville, Woodburn. The plan will be used by area leaders to guide decision making that will shape the community for years to come.
