The Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission today will consider approving a declaratory resolution, which would amend the Jefferson Boulevard/Illinois Road Economic Development Area.

The proposed amendment would expand the area to increase economic development opportunities. The boundaries of the expanded area are Jefferson Boulevard on the north, Ewing Street on the west, Baker Street on the south, and Harrison Street on the east. The expanded area would include the proposed Harrison Square development.

If the resolution is approved by the Redevelopment Commission, it would then go before the Fort Wayne Plan Commission and Fort Wayne City Council for approval before returning to the Redevelopment Commission for a confirmatory resolution.

The meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. in Room 128 of the City-County Building.
