Recently City Council voted to create an "economic development area" (EDA) in the Waynedale area. This designation includes much of Bluffton Road north of Lower Huntington Road as well as other areas including the old Maloley's property at the intersection of Lower Huntington Road and Old Trail. This step should be an additional boost for current and future businesses in the EDA and opens the door for tax abatements and other benefits for current businesses interested in expanding as well as...

Fort Wayne and cities across the country currently are facing difficult economic challenges. Revenues are below estimates, budgets are being cut, some governments are laying off employees. In this time of recession, restructuring and reassessment it becomes even more important for the City of Fort Wayne to invest its limited resources in projects that will grow our economy.
