Fort Wayne, IN


Thriving Fort Wayne - 4/2/2015
I have lived here since August 2013 due to a new job. My $82,000 salary affords me a very comfortable life style. About 20 years ago, Fort Wayne lost a lost of manufacturing industry and since 2010, the city government has been working hard to reshape the businesses that call Fort Wayne home. Many upscale retail businesses are doing well here. Slowly, businesses are moving to the area. Consequently, more job options are becoming more available. There is a thriving community college (about 12,000 enrolled annually), Indiana University and Purdue University share a Fort Wayne campus (called IPFW), and private colleges with campuses are Trine University, Indiana Tech University, and University of St. Francis. With that many colleges in the area, cultural options abound. Growth is to the southwest and northwest sectors of town. The original areas of Fort Wayne are well maintained and provide old world charm. There is enough population (approx 250,000 within city limits; another 250,000 in surrounding suburbs) to provide lots of options for something to do.
