Press release from the City of Fort Wayne:
Public forum to allow for input about local government space needs
Informal session will allow opportunity for citizen comment about organization of offices
The public is invited to weigh in on the anticipated moves of City and County government offices within the City-County Building and 200 E. Berry St. The public forum on space use will be held on Monday, October 19, 2009 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Omni Room on the second floor of the City-County Building.
John Stafford, Director of IPFW’s Community Research Institute and leader of the facilities working group that helped the City and County identify potential alternatives for using the two buildings, will facilitate Monday’s meeting.
“City and County officials have been doing a lot of research and talking, but it will ultimately be Fort Wayne and Allen County residents who use these offices and facilities,” Mayor Tom Henry said. “As we continue to evaluate what departments should be located where, it is important we hear from the public about their preferences in this reorganization of the location of key local government services.”
The informal session will include a presentation about the proposals, a brief written survey and the opportunity to comment about what City and County departments seem logical to place together.
