What Is Packard 2030

The City of Fort Wayne's Community Development Division's Neighborhood Planning and Activation Workgroup worked together with the Packard Area Planning Alliance to develop Packard 2030, a planning document that provides a shared vision and direction for the group of neighborhoods located in the southwest urban core of the city. The plan provides strategies for investing in growth, building community, and improving the quality of life for Packard area residents. 

The recommendations found in the document were shaped by nearly 1,500 interactions with residents, businesses, and stakeholders, and drafted by an advisory committee comprised of neighborhood leaders in the Packard Area. Packard 2030 is build on three strategic chapters:

  • Neighborhood Revitalization
  • Neighborhood Character
  • Neighborhood Public Realm

Packard 2030 includes the following neighborhoods: 

Broad River Courts of Woodhurst Creighton Home Fairfield Fairfield Terrace Belmont Fairmont
Foster Park Harrison Hill Hoagland Masterson Illsley Place Oakdale Poplar
Sherwood to Pettit South Wayne Southwood Park West Rudisill Williams Woodland Park Woodhurst
