About Us

The Downtown Improvement District is an Economic Improvement District established by City Council 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 Downtown Improvement District is governed by a Board of Directors and 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 an attractive place to live, work, and enjoy which is ready for commerce.

The DID’s mission statement is: “Advancing Downtown Fort Wayne as the vibrant, urban core of northeast Indiana.”

We are constantly looking for ways to improve Downtown Fort Wayne. If you have any suggestions or questions, please feel free to contact us
