Plan-it Allen!, the first-ever, joint land use and development plan for Allen County and Fort Wayne, will be discussed before two governing bodies this week.

5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, Room 128 of the City-County Building; Fort Wayne City Council discussion

1 p.m. Wednesday, March 21, Room 126 of the City-County Building; Allen County Plan Commission public hearing and possible recommendation

The plan will serve as the official policy document for addressing issues related to growth and development in Allen County and Fort Wayne.

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.
