PREVIOUSLY VACANT AND ABANDONED HOME NOW A NEIGHBORHOOD ASSET
August 25, 2016 - The City’s Office of Housing and Neighborhood Services (OHNS) has completed the first rehab of one of six West Central homes. News media were given a tour of the completely remodeled 1121 Fulton St. today.
The City purchased six vacant and abandoned homes in the historic neighborhood in 2014; all either have been or will be rehabilitated and offered for purchase to moderate- to middle-income residents. All buyers have had, or will have, significant input into the remodeling process so the homes can be customized to their preferences.

Earlier this evening, my administration presented an update on the status of the Legacy fund that is assisting us in our efforts to be a point of destination and a national leader in creating and retaining jobs and providing businesses and residents with an excellent quality of life.
Fort Wayne is unique in that we’ve put aside significant capital for financial growth and stability through the Legacy fund. It’s money to help transform our City into all that it can be.
