The City of Fort Wayne will lead a group of volunteers in a door-to- door survey campaign from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, October 15 in the Hanna-Creighton neighborhood.

Residents will be asked what services they feel are needed in their neighborhood. The needs and services survey is the first step in the City'€™s Synergy project to implement a revitalization strategy throughout neighborhoods in Fort Wayne. A pilot program is underway in the Hanna-Creighton area.

The new Fort Wayne Urban League building will serve as the headquarters for the volunteers. Transportation will be provided by local churches and the Fort Wayne Housing Authority.

The Synergy project will update the Hanna-Creighton neighborhood plan and examine housing, health and human services, public safety, recreation, education and literacy, commercial and retail services, transportation, employment opportunities, and spiritual and social services issues.

The City of Fort Wayne, community organizations, faith-based organizations, and private citizens are working together to improve the quality of life in the Hanna-Creighton neighborhood. Partners hope to capitalize on the many assets in the area which include the new Allen County Public Library Pontiac Branch, schools, churches, CANI'€™s Head Start program, the Urban League, Citilink bus stop, YMCA, and the Fort Wayne Police station.
