FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Dozens of people are letting city leaders know what direction they want to see in southeast Fort Wayne.

The city is working with the Southeast Area Partnership to update the strategic plan for the area.

Monday, dozens of people let leaders know what they think is working and what isn't.

Many people at the kickoff meeting say they want amenities like sit down restaurants that are in other parts of town.

"There's a lot of money on the southside of town. We have to survive, but we have to go way out to get the necessities for our home," said Peggy Williams.

"It's vital for people, investors specifically, to see there is such a demand and a willingness of people to actually spend their time here," said Fort Wayne Community Development director Cindy Joyner.

There will be a southeast strategy wrap up party in an empty store in the old K-Mart plaza on Thursday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
