REVITALIZATION AND DEVELOPMENT
The state of Indiana, through the Indiana Main Street program, encourages the revitalization and restoration of downtown areas in Indiana cities and towns. Fort Wayne has taken this initiative a step further by not only making cosmetic and structural improvements, but has revitalized the area by planning and promoting events to re-connect citizens to city centers. A major investor in the downtown Fort Wayne improvement has been Ash Brokerage. According to Mayor Tom Henry, the creation of the Ash Skyline Plaza will be a “point of destination” for residents, businesses and tourists alike. There is also a proposed initiative to revitalize the riverfront areas of the 3 Fort Wayne rivers.
