Today we made even more progress on our camper-designed bench and presented our ideas to the zoning staff of Allen County, Indiana and Community Development Staff of City of Fort Wayne to learn about the process of making their vision for the vacant lot a reality!
Our campers did a great job presenting their work and learned: why zoning exists, what land-uses are allowed "as-of-right" for our vacant lot, and the process of seeking a special use permit. We even got some great tips regarding the next steps we should take to begin bringing our project to fruition.
Thanks to everyone at the Allen County Zoning Office and the Fort Wayne Department of Community Development for their time and encouragement!
