FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The city of Fort Wayne’s riverfront development project has cleared a hurdle.
At Tuesday’s city council meeting, the contract for schematic designs of the riverfront promenade will be introduced to the city council.
The city will invest $390,000 for the design work, which will come from the $6 million in Legacy funding previously approved by the City Council.
Riverworks Design Group says they hope to have the designs done in July, while the city hopes construction begins on the riverfront project in 2017.
The council could approve the contract by the Tuesday, March 22nd meeting. Its the first of many contracts the council is expected to approve before ground is broken on the project.
