The City of Fort Wayne is taking public input on its riverfront development study. The study is a comprehensive look at the City’s rivers and surrounding land, and intended to guide future investment and development for the downtown riverfront.

The locavore movement is starting to take hold in Northeast Indiana, as is evident by the growing popularity of farmers markets. We want to know where our food is grown and raised. When you buy produce from the grocery store, you don’t know where or by whom it was grown.
