Mayor Tom Henry and other city officials unveiled the new "Envision Fort Wayne Center” today at 916 S. Calhoun Street.

Envisioning riverfront development in downtown Fort Wayne

Mayor Tom Henry opened the Envision Fort Wayne Center Monday, a downtown storefront meant to gather citizen input on riverfront development.

Paid for by a Knight Foundation grant, the center will be staffed three days a week, with additional hours added during downtown festivals and events.

Officials want to hear from citizens what they envision for the downtown riverfront. That input will be part of the $500,000 study of riverfront development currently under way.

The center, at 916 S. Calhoun St., across from One Summit Square, is open 2-6 p.m. Tuesdays, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays.
