FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Southeast Strategy Plan presented Wednesday night via Facebook showed new plans that include recommendations from residents on economic development, housing, transportation, infrastructure, and zoning.
"We had people come out who aren't typically involved with these types of gatherings or functions,” Southeast Area Partnership Chair Cherise Dixie said.
One of the new features of the plan includes wellness and community connectivity.
"There's a wellness piece that's recognized in this plan that is missing from the first one. We're talking about access to healthcare, access to healthy foods, walkability, those kinds of things," she explained.
Sixth District Councilwoman Sharon Tucker said the suggestions along with market value housing is going to bring more people into the Southeast.
"We actually have been in conversation with two builders for sure that are actually rendering their drawings, working on their plan, and own the land that they look to develop on. We're trying to figure out how we can come alongside them, and figure out a partnership as Councilwoman and city to help them complete those plans," she said.
