I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your patience during the busy construction that is wrapping up.
I recently provided a recap of the unprecedented investments made in neighborhoods throughout the City of Fort Wayne.
More than $20 million was invested in neighborhood infrastructure projects. Highlights included 50 miles of paving, 10 miles of concrete reconstruction, brick street work, 12 miles of chip and seal repairs, sidewalk improvements, and curb and ramp repairs.
Increased funding for neighborhood projects was made possible by the leadership of my administration, the Fiscal Policy Group, neighborhood and business leaders, and the members of City Council who supported and passed a financial plan to allow for additional resources to be allocated for infrastructure work.
More than 300 construction jobs were created as a result of this year’s enhancements to the City’s infrastructure system.
I’m encouraged by the positive momentum we continue to see as we invest in our future. By working together, we’re a leader in focusing on neighborhoods, building on our excellent quality of life, and positioning Fort Wayne for economic and job growth.
