The Fort Wayne TinCaps released their schedule for the 2013 season. Coming off of the greatest attended regular season and playoffs in franchise history, the team looks to build on that success in their fifth season at Parkview Field. “It is truly hard to believe we are already planning for the fifth season downtown,” said TinCaps Team President, Mike Nutter. “It seems like just yesterday that we opened the gates to the ballpark and welcomed in our first fan. Now, nearly 300 TinCaps games and four seasons later, we’ve welcomed well over 1.5 million fans. That isn’t a number we take lightly. We feel we owe this community an affordable, fun, family-friendly entertainment option every summer. The 2013 season will be all of that and more.” Read more!
Downtown revitalization continues in Downtown Fort Wayne as announced by the City of Fort Wayne – Municipal Government. Project improvements include: *A wider, unimpeded sidewalk that will be raised slightly to provide full access for people with disabilities to more of the Anthony Wayne and the Journal Gazette buildings’ store frontages. *A block-long landscape planter to extend the qualities of the Courthouse Green across the street and to provide a buffer against motor traffic; maintenance will be provided by adjacent property owners. *Downtown-style sidewalks, with patterning and brick accent strips, improved LED historically styled lights, and street trees along Berry. *Shorter street crossings on Clinton with improved crosswalk markings. These changes will improve safety and convenience for pedestrians. *The remaining easternmost lane of Clinton north of Main will become a dedicated left turn lane onto Main, reappearing as a travel lane south of Berry. http://www.cityoffortwayne.org/latest-news/2443-downtown-revitalization-continues.html
