February 21, 2024 - Today, Mayor Tom Henry announced a significant milestone in enhancing community involvement. The City of Fort Wayne is proud to introduce Engage Fort Wayne, an innovative online platform that encourages active citizen engagement in city projects and programs.

Engage Fort Wayne provides residents with a one-stop location to access information about ongoing initiatives and actively contribute their perspectives to the City's plans and implementation. The site currently features several Community Development, Parks and Recreation, and Public Works projects. However, Engage Fort Wayne plans to broaden its reach by including projects from other City departments and divisions in the upcoming months.

The new website, Engage Fort Wayne, changes how people interact with their local government by using a digital platform instead of traditional methods. It aims to make participation easier and more inclusive by combining online and in-person activities. Feedback collected through Engage Fort Wayne will be openly shared after each engagement activity.

Mayor Henry emphasized the importance of Engage Fort Wayne in empowering residents, saying, "Fort Wayne's success relies on its residents being actively involved. Engage Fort Wayne shows our commitment to inclusivity and collaboration, especially among neighborhoods, by giving everyone a platform to be heard and valued."

Engage Fort Wayne goes beyond ADA requirements by offering multilingual translation (Spanish, French, Tagalog, Chinese, Burmese, Vietnamese, Ukrainian, and more) and ensuring access from any device with its responsive design.

The City of Fort Wayne is setting a new standard for community engagement with the launch of Engage Fort Wayne to encourage participation and civic involvement. Residents are invited to visit the new website at engage.cityoffortwayne.org.
