The Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission on Monday, May 21 will consider approving a confirmatory resolution, which would amend the Jefferson Boulevard/Illinois Road Economic Development Area. The meeting will also include a public hearing on the proposed amendment.

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 Harrison Square development.

At its March 19 meeting, the Redevelopment Commission approved a declaratory resolution for the expansion of the economic development area. At its March 26 meeting, the Fort Wayne Plan Commission determined the proposed amended area complies with the City'€™s Comprehensive Plan. At its April 24 meeting, Fort Wayne City Council approved amending the economic development area. If the confirmatory resolution is approved by the Redevelopment Commission, the amendment would take effect.

The meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. in Room LL12 at the Allen County Public Library, 900 Library Plaza.
