The work to create an exciting and distinctive place called Riverfront Fort Wayne is continuing beyond Promenade Park with the creation of a Master Plan that will guide the way private development takes place, ensure residents have access to public spaces along the riverfront, and create a unique experience for all residents and visitors.
“These next steps are all about creating a vibrant district that is unique to Fort Wayne,” said Mayor Tom Henry. “We want to create the right mix of commercial, retail, housing and public space that will be welcoming to all residents and will be a point of destination for our region.”
Project began with Planning and Design Team kickoff meeting. Inventory & analysis process for study area was initiated.
First public forum for Riverfront Phases II & III. The planning team shared information about the planning process and initial site analysis. Public input was sought to help make the Riverfront the best version of itself.

Final documentation resulting from the engagement and planning process will be presented to the public.

Significant public engagement through the planning process will give voice to Fort Wayne’s diverse constituency and ensure that the riverfront plan is informed by and inclusive of the breadth of citizenry throughout the region. Everyone has a place in the Fort Wayne riverfront.
