ENVISION FORT WAYNE CENTER - MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR

Details
Text Size:

I want to invite you to take a visit to downtown to see the new Envision Fort Wayne Center at 916 S. Calhoun Street. The center is a storefront that provides citizens with ways to learn about and contribute to community projects such as Riverfront Fort Wayne and the Downtown Fort Wayne Plan 2020.

A grant from the Knight Foundation is covering the costs for the rent, utilities, furnishings and equipment at the facility. City Planning Department employees staff the center and discuss ideas with visitors Tuesdays 2-6 p.m., Thursdays 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and Fridays 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Additional hours will be added during downtown festivals and events.

Currently, the center is filled with displays about riverfront development. Educational information about development opportunities and constraints, river water quality, river history and successful riverfronts in other communities are all available for the public to see. Throughout the riverfront study process, the displays will change and citizens will have opportunities to express opinions about possible riverfront concepts.

You may stop in any time the Center is open or schedule a time for their group to visit by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We're on the cutting-edge for a community our size to have this outstanding center for public engagement. It will provide an unprecedented way for citizens to engage with government and the community.

I continue to be encouraged with the investment and progress we're seeing in Fort Wayne. Thank you for doing your part to make our City great.
