Work begins on neighborhood alley improvements through local income tax change

Fort Wayne, Ind. – Efforts to enhance alleys in the City of Fort Wayne are underway with the first neighborhood alley improvement project as part of City Council’s recent passage of an increase to the local income tax.

Killea and West Leith streets from South Calhoun Street to Hoagland Avenue is the first of many projects to occur in Fort Wayne neighborhoods.

“Neighborhoods are the backbone of Fort Wayne. It’s critical to invest in our neighborhoods and build on the excellent quality of life amenities in our community,” said Mayor Tom Henry. “Thriving neighborhoods make Fort Wayne more attractive for economic development opportunities and job growth as we work to be a point of destination.”

Neighborhood alley projects planned for 2018
*Spatz Ave. and Gaywood Dr. from E. Pettit to McKinnie avenues
*Weisser Park Ave. and South Park Dr. from E. Pettit to Congress avenues
*Warsaw and S. Monroe streets from E. Maplegrove Ave. to E. Sherwood Terrace
*Central and Plaza drives from McKee to Pontiac streets

City Councilmen Dr. John Crawford, Tom Didier, Tom Freistroffer, Glynn Hines, Geoff Paddock and Michael Barranda voted in favor of the income tax plan to provide additional revenues for needed neighborhood infrastructure enhancements and future phases of riverfront development.

The .13 percent adjustment in the local income tax will generate $8.7 million per year to add new sidewalks to address areas of Fort Wayne Community Schools that lack sidewalks for children, improve alleys and move forward with phases II and III of riverfront development.
