Meetings to Engage Community on Future of City Light Lease Funds
Mayor Tom Henry and the Legacy Fort Wayne Task Force asks the people of Fort Wayne to “save the dates” for upcoming community meetings that will help to determine the future of the Fort Wayne Community Trust and City Light Lease Settlement funds. Nine public sessions are scheduled at convenient sites across the city throughout the month of March.
“The community engagement phase of Legacy Fort Wayne is just around the corner,” said Mayor Henry. “I’m inviting every to get involved. Nine public meetings are planned. Find the one that is closest to you and mark it on your calendar today. Then come to the event and help shape the future of these legacy funds. If you already have an idea, go to FeedbackFortWayne.org and share your suggestions online at any time.”
All of the public input gathered during the community involvement process will be considered by the Task Force as the members formulate the recommendations they will make to the Mayor and share with Fort Wayne City Council.The full initiative, including all Task Force events, is open to the public. Task Force sessions are also broadcast live on City TV (Comcast 58 and Frontier FiOS 28). Video of the first Task Force meeting, in its entirety, is available on the Legacy Fort Wayne website at www.LegacyFortWayne.org.
Formed by Mayor Henry, Legacy Fort Wayne is the community initiative to guide decision making about the Fort Wayne Community Trust and City Light Lease Settlement funds.
While Legacy Fort Wayne will unfold over the next several months, the two funds will not become available until the settlement agreement has received the approval of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.
