You’re Invited to Give Your Input on the Downtown Riverfront

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Do you have an idea for the downtown riverfront? If so, a walk along the St Mary's River, could turn that vision into a reality.

You're invited to take a guided walk alongside the St. Marys River with consultants from SWA Group and local architects. They'll sketch your concepts for what you envision along the downtown riverfront and you'll also be able to see how your ideas might work into the existing landscape.

There are two walks scheduled:

October 6 from 5:30-7 p.m.

October 7 from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Both walks start at Fort Wayne Outfitters/Bike Depot, on Cass Street and parking will be available.

In November 2013, the City contracted with SWA Group to complete the Riverfront Study, which is the first comprehensive look at enhancing the use of Fort Wayne's rivers. The study is expected to be completed in January 2015.
