$6 Million in Legacy Money Approved for Riverfront Development
Phase one of Fort Wayne’s riverfront development is one step closer to being funded.
The Legacy Joint Funding Committee approved $6 million for the project Wednesday. That money will join $3 million from the Community Foundation, and another $3 million from the Capital Improvement board to be used over the next two years.
A key element of the first phase of development is property acquisition. But City officials say the first steps will be to care for the vegetation along the river banks, and to complete a comprehensive environmental study.
