Plan-it Allen! has been shaped by community involvement and examined areas such as economic development, transportation, housing and neighborhoods, and community identity to name a few. Allen County and Fort Wayne launched the Plan-it Allen! process in 2003. This is the first time in over 20 years that both County and City plans have been updated. For more information, visit
