FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – The City of Fort Wayne Neighborhood Planning and Activation Task Force, in coordination with the Northside, Forest Park and North Anthony Neighborhood Associations, is seeking input from residents, business owners and organizations in the region as part of a new neighborhood project. With input from the community, the new plan will establish a vision and provide recommendations to help guide future growth, redevelopment and preservation efforts in the area.
The three neighborhood associations working together as the group The Historic Northeast Neighborhood want to know their residents’ priorities for the area and invite them to complete a quick 22-question online survey.
The survey, available in English and Spanish, can be viewed 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 places where they would like to see improvements such as bike paths, parks, etc.
“Here in the Northside neighborhood, we are excited to be working with the city and our sister neighborhoods on a plan to bring our residents even closer to their community. Neighbors, businesses, infrastructure and culture – all work together to create a sense of meaning and place,” said Lori Stombaugh, President of Northside.
Due for completion by the end of 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, zoning and land use.
