July 20, 2022 - The City of Fort Wayne’s Neighborhood Planning and Activation workgroup in coordination with the Northside, Forest Park, and North Anthony neighborhood associations is seeking input from area residents, business owners, and organizations as part of a new neighborhood plan. With community input, the new plan will establish a vision and make recommendations to help guide future growth, redevelopment, and preservation efforts in the area.
The three neighborhood associations working together as The Historic Northeast Neighborhood group want to hear from its residents about their priorities for the area and are inviting them to take a quick 22-question online survey. The survey, available in both English and Spanish, can be found online at www.historicnortheast.com. Paper surveys are also available at Citizens Square and the Tecumseh Library Branch located at 1411 E. State Blvd. In addition to the survey, participants are encouraged to use an interactive map to mark locations where they would like to see improvements such as bike lanes, parks, and more.
“Here in the Northside Neighborhood, we’re excited to work with the city and our sister neighborhoods on a plan to bring more of our residents into connection with their community. Neighbors, businesses, infrastructure and culture – all working together to create a sense of meaning and belonging,” said Lori Stombaugh, Northside President.
Expected to be completed in late 2023, the plan will address neighborhood topics such as historic preservation, economic development, housing, marketing, infrastructure and utilities, parks and recreation, transportation, parking, connectivity, public safety, and zoning and land use.
