August 28, 2023 - The City of Fort Wayne invites residents to attend a public meeting to discuss expansion of the 6-Mile Creek Trail.
The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, August 29 at Paul Harding Jr. High School, 6501 Wayne Trace.
The City of Fort Wayne is applying for a Neighborhood Access & Equity Grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation for the engineering and construction of the trail and would like to gather public input from local residents. The nearly five miles of the trail that will be funded with the grant begins at Fellowship Missionary Church, the intersection of Lemar Drive and Tillman Road, and will stretch to the intersection of Seiler Road and Maplecrest Road.

The Fort Wayne Area Trails Network consists of nearly 135 miles of trails, with 97.4 miles inside City limits. Most of the trails in City limits are planned, designed, constructed and maintained by the City of Fort Wayne, under the leadership of Mayor Tom Henry.
