Riverfront Findings to Be Released

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): You're invited to Wednesday night's Big Reveal, of the final recommendations for the downtown Riverfront Development Project study.


The Big Reveal is the final public meeting of the riverfront study process. It begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Anthony Wayne Ballroom of the Grand Wayne Convention Center. Mary Tyndall, spokeswoman for Community Development in Fort Wayne, says what you can expect if you plan on attending the celebration, “really a very large gallery of all kinds of boards and renderings; drawings and photos of what could be possible along our downtown riverfront.”


Also during the event, riverfront consultant SWA Group will present their final recommendations. A reception that features live music and refreshments will follow the presentation.


The top 25 photos selected from the Riverfront Fort Wayne photo contest are also set to be on display. Winners of the photo contest were determined by likes on Facebook. 192 photos were entered in the contest and during the one-week voting period, more than 3,000 votes were tallied on Facebook. The three photos with the most votes will be announced during the event.
