FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Fort Wayne Housing Authority is looking to build a permanent supporting housing development.

That's why it is partnering with UP Development to build "River's Edge."

The community is planned to be built on Spy Run Extended, between Clinton Street and Parnell Avenue.

The housing authority said the center will help people with disabilities escape homelessness while providing services they need.

"In our community, we've done a great job of providing services for homeless individuals and families, in terms of transitional housing. Our shelters are doing a great job," said George Guy, Fort Wayne Housing Authority CEO.

The River's Edge is expected to open in 2019.

There will be a public meeting Monday discussing the project.

It's happening at The Fort Wayne Housing Authority on Hanna Street, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
