Fort Wayne & NE Indiana News

The latest positive news written by residents and organizations in our community.

Statement From Mayor Tom Henry On Enterprise Pointe

As we continue to experience unprecedented momentum in the City of Fort Wayne, it’s important for all of us to remain committed to working together to make a meaningful difference in our community.

Earlier tonight, Fort Wayne City Council voted against the Enterprise Pointe project planned for the West Rudisill Boulevard area.

I would like to thank Ambassador Campus Properties and Brightpoint for proposing an innovative project with potential for positive opportunities to enhance Fort Wayne.

Our residents and neighborhoods should also be commended for taking the time to study the issue, discuss the proposal in detail, and demonstrate strong passion for our City.

I would encourage Ambassador and residents in the neighborhoods in the area near Ambassador’s property to come together to pursue a productive dialogue on options for a compatible use for the property.

My Administration plans to have discussions with Brightpoint on possible options for locations in a downtown setting that might be a better fit for the housing and business model that was proposed.

We must continue to invest in our future to attract and retain jobs and be a leader in quality of life and neighborhood enhancements.
