City leaders tonight will introduce a plan to City Council to expand the boundaries of an Urban Renewal Area for the Renaissance Pointe development.

Renaissance Pointe calls for nearly 400 new homes, the rehabilitation of more than 100 existing homes, a greenway trail, and improved infrastructure. The Renaissance Pointe area is bounded by Creighton Avenue on the north, Pontiac Street on the south, Hanna Street on the west, and  South Anthony Boulevard on the east. The development is scheduled to begin this fall, with model units to be constructed in spring 2007.

Last month, the Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission and the Fort Wayne Plan Commission approved the expanded boundaries.

The City Council meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in Room 128 of the City-County Building.
