FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Fort Wayne's city council is making some changes to a proposed public art commission and public art fund.
The ordinance to bring more art to the the city was announced March 8.
Part of the proposal includes requiring businesses who receive TIF benefits from the city to contribute one percent of that benefit to a public art fund.
However, council put in a clause in that ordinance Tuesday that would end that requirement in 2022.
"The future councils in 2022 can look at this and they can reevaluate how much money was put in there and where did the developers decide to keep their money and how the neighborhoods used their money," said Tom Freistroffer, (R) At-Large.
City Council will make a final vote on establishing a public arts commission and public art fund next week.
