City council introduced the ordinance that would bring 174 homes into Fort Wayne.

Fifty-one percent of the owners in the neighborhood signed a petition to be annexed.

Residents have said their main concern is police and fire protection, especially since part of the neighborhood is already in city limits.

A public hearing is scheduled for September 11 at 5:30 p.m.

The annexation wouldn't take effect until next year at the earliest.
