City Council Meeting – 11/25/2008

The Fort Wayne City Council in Regular Session

There is a City Council meeting this evening at 5:30 pm at the City-County Building.  There are two items of importance on the agenda, well, they are all important, but two more so than the average resolution or ordinance.  

First on the agenda is a public hearing for the proposed tax abatement changes as put forth by Council women Liz Brown and Karen Goldner.  Later in the Committee Session, the Council will discuss the changes as put forth.  A final vote on the ordinance will probably take place at next week’s meeting.

Following will be a presentation by Jim Irwin, of Barry Real Estate.  He will be giving an update of The Harrison which is the condominium/retail portion of Harrison Square.  There has been revamping of the condominium portion of the project, including cutting the number of units from 62 to around 30.  They have also had difficulty in obtaining construction loans for the project which is understandable given today’s economic crisis in this country.
