On Tuesday, January 24, Fort Wayne City Council will vote to approve or reject a loan request from the Legacy Fund for the revitalization of The Landing in downtown Fort Wayne. This important decision could have a lasting impact on downtown.
Young Leaders of Northeast Indiana (YLNI) and its membership support The Landing Development in downtown Fort Wayne, as we believe The Landing is vital to our community’s growth and continued momentum. Redevelopment of The Landing through private retail and commercial development could bring revitalized economic activity and new employment to downtown Fort Wayne. This unique combination aligns with YLNI’s mission in attracting, developing, and retaining emerging leaders.
Before Tuesday's vote, YLNI is asking members to contact the nine members of City Council and urge them to vote "Yes" for a Legacy Fund loan that has been requested by The Model Group, the chosen developer of the project.
