FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry is encouraging people to take the online Riverfront Fort Wayne Uses and Activities survey, which is designed to collect input about how Fort Wayne residents would like to see the downtown riverfront developed.
The survey includes ten questions that focus on the importance of elements like housing, natural habitat space, and recreation opportunities. The responses will be provided to the the city’s riverfront consultant, SWA Group, as it works on a study that should be completed in January 2015.
“Riverfront Fort Wayne is for everyone,” said Mayor Henry. “That’s why it’s critical that we hear from residents about what they’d like to see along our downtown rivers. This is a great opportunity to assist us in continuing the unprecedented momentum we’re seeing in our City.”
Anyone who would like to complete a hard copy of the survey may visit the Envision Fort Wayne Center, 916 S. Calhoun St. The Center is open Tuesdays 2-6 p.m., Thursdays 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and Fridays 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and will also be open May 17 from noon-3 p.m. during the Kickstart Festival. Paper copies of the survey will also be available during the Riverpalooza festival May 31 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at the historic Wells St. Bridge.
