FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Northwest Allen County Schools named its new elementary school still under construction.

Aspen Meadow Elementary is the name nearly 500 district staff members voted on.

Principal Kim Lochmueller said the name needed to fit the names of other schools in NACS and had to be a landmark.

The school, being built on Hathaway Road in Huntertown, is expected to open next fall.

District leaders said this should help alleviate overcrowding in current elementary schools.

Aspen Meadow is being built after voters approved a referendum in 2018.
