News release from Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation:

Youth Sports Community Assessment and Market Potential Study
Public Survey Available

(August 7, 2013) – The public is invited to participate in an electronic survey to offer input about youth sports growth opportunities for Fort Wayne. Click here to participate.

The survey can also be found on the Home Page at www.fortwayneparks.org under News Flash. As a key component of the Legacy Fort Wayne initiative, the City of Fort Wayne has engaged a consulting team to examine the market potential for youth sports in the Fort Wayne community. The ultimate goal of this study will be to identify youth sports growth opportunities for Fort Wayne, recommend future sports facility needs, and suggest ways to expand sports marketing efforts both regionally and nationally. It’s anticipated the study will be completed by the end of the year.

Legacy Fort Wayne was created by proceeds from the sale of the City Light Utility to Indiana Michigan Power and its funds are being used to create transformational change in the community.

For more information, contact Perry Ehresman, Deputy Director, Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation at 260-427-6009.

  • “The President’s doomsday scenarios are of his own choosing,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., argued in response to Cutter’s email. “The sequester will cut 2.3 percent, or $85 billion, from the massive $3.55 trillion the federal government is projected to spend this year alone. To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”
