In order to help protect the health and safety of the public and Community Development employees, the following measures have been taken as of May 4, 2020.

Neighborhood Code Compliance

  • All order-to-repair and demolition hearings are suspended until June 18, 2020. 
  • All payments are suspended until July 1, 2020.
  • Because only trash in bins is being collected, Neighborhood Code Compliance will issue orders for residents to dispose of any garbage bags or debris left curbside or elsewhere on their properties. Property owners have ten days from the time an order is issued to remove the trash; after that time a contractor will collect the trash and debris and the property owner will be billed for the service.

Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services

  • All loan payments for home repairs and other services are waived through September. Anyone who has made an advance payment will receive a refund. Letters will be mailed to all loan holders.
  • The Fair Housing Summit Scheduled for April 29 at the War Memorial Coliseum has been postponed and the public and registrants will be notified when there is a new date.

    General Housing Information:
  • All Allen County eviction proceedings are temporarily stayed. See news release here.
  • Department of Housing & Urban Development suspends all foreclosures and evictions. See release here.
  • Governor Eric Holcomb is prohibiting evictions until or after July 1, 2020. Find information here.

Economic Development
Any business that has been designated as an Economic Revitalization Area (allowing them to receive a tax phase-in) should complete and submit compliance forms by June 15, 2020 (extended from May 15). Find more information here.

Planning & Policy
The All in Allen Comprehensive Plan Public Workshops and focus groups have been postponed. The public is invited to share their ideas for the future of Fort Wayne and Allen County through a questionnaire and mapping exercise at www.AllinAllen.org.
