The Downtown Improvement District (DID) is an Economic Improvement District established under State of Indiana statute. Our services improve the business climate of the district and allow owners of non-residential real property to more easily assess their own economic potential. The DID is governed by the Board of Directors. The DID partners with the City of Fort Wayne and a wide-variety of public, not-for-profit, and private sector organizations to make downtown Fort Wayne a more attractive place in which to live, work, create, and do business.
The DID’s mission is to create a strong, economically vibrant urban core of the Northeast Indiana region through special events and marketing, beautification efforts, and advocacy and business development. We believe in Fort Wayne development, growth, and sustainability!
We are constantly looking for ways to improve Downtown Fort Wayne. If you have any suggestions or questions, please feel free to contact us.
