Mayor Tom Henry today announced the launch of a new website for Fort Wayne neighborhoods. The site, available at www.FortWayneNeighborhoods.org, is also available by visiting www.CityofFortWayne.org and clicking on the top Neighborhoods menu item.
In addition to the website, the City of Fort Wayne is starting two social media channels and an electronic newsletter to help connect and inform neighborhood leaders.
“I’m encouraged by the progress and excitement we’re seeing in neighborhoods throughout all of Fort Wayne. The new website is a great tool for residents as we work to enhance outreach and communication efforts,” said Mayor Henry. “Neighborhoods are the backbone of Fort Wayne and it’s vital for us to invest in our neighborhoods and highlight the importance of providing resources and opportunities for all residents to be involved in making our community a better place to live, work and play.”
The website offers quick and streamlined access to information about neighborhood meetings, contacts and City resources. A Tips & Tools section will soon offer best practices about how to organize and operate neighborhood associations.
A Fort Wayne Neighborhoods Facebook page is available at https://www.facebook.com/FWNeighborhoods/ or by searching Fort Wayne Neighborhoods. The Twitter handle is @FWNeighborhoods.
Residents may sign up for a monthly neighborhoods e-newsletter by visiting the Stay in Touch section of the website. The newsletter will provide information about all City services, particularly those that directly affect neighborhoods.
