FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — City leaders in Fort Wayne say they're going to spend about $20 million on a development along the St. Marys River that will include a pavilion, promenade, elevated boardwalk and concrete dock.
The amount is more than city officials originally said the project would cost. The first drawings of the development were unveiled Wednesday.
Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry says the goal is to have all needed property acquired and demolition underway by next summer. Plans call for the project to be completed by late summer 2018.
The $20 million figure doesn't include land acquisition and design costs. It would be funded by the state Regional Cities grant, private donations and other sources.
