October 2, 2023 - The City of Fort Wayne’s Community Development Division is asking the residents of the Oxford Neighborhood to provide input on future improvements to Oxford Street between Lafayette Street and South Anthony Boulevard.
The Southeast Strategy Update completed in 2021 outlined the project as a neighborhood corridor that would see future improvements. These include pedestrian safety, traffic calming, and aesthetic enhancements such as streetscape, lighting, neighborhood identity, and landscaping. The corridor serves multiple neighborhood assets, connecting residents to community spaces such as Weisser Park, Irwin Elementary School, the Oxford Community Center, the Euell A. Wilson Community Center, and the newest location for the Neighborhood Health Clinic.
The City is working with engineering firm Jones Petrie Rafinski of Fort Wayne to create design concepts based on input from the neighborhood. The survey is available in English and Spanish at www.oxfordstreetproject.com and in paper copies at the Euell A. Wilson Center and Positive Resource Connection, both located on Oxford Street.
The survey is available online and should be submitted before October 9. Design concepts will be presented for public input in November.
