During the meeting, residents will learn about the progress being made on phases II and III of Riverfront Fort Wayne, which will deliver: a comprehensive riverfront neighborhood master plan, analysis and recommendations for infrastructure to serve new private development and manage the floodway, and schematic designs and construction documents for further public improvements along the rivers’ edge. Residents will have an opportunity to provide their input during interactive planning exercises.
Residents will also learn about the progress on Riverfront Fort Wayne’s Promenade Park, due to open this summer. Snacks will be served and those in attendance will have an opportunity to win tickets to Riverfront Fort Wayne’s Winter Cozy, scheduled for January 26, 2019 at Headwaters Park West.
