Northeast Indiana has a compelling story to tell, and Input Fort Wayne is sharing the captivating stories happening across the 11-county region.

Input Fort Wayne is a weekly publication that tells authentic stories about bold startups, catalytic talent, emerging places and ideas from across the region. As a community-focused website, the publication features the work of local writers, journalists and photographers showcasing the evolving culture of Northeast Indiana to talented individuals living in the region and potential talent looking to relocate.

Telling Northeast Indiana's positive story to a larger audience is critical to branding and talent attraction efforts. Input Fort Wayne serves as an agile, timely and relevant outlet to accomplish those goals.

The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership is a strong supporter of the regional publication. Each month, we will highlight our staff’s Top 5 Input Fort Wayne articles from the previous month.

Here’s what we picked for our favorite stories this month:

A look at New Urbanism in the Midwest

  • Story selected by Director of Stakeholder Development Nick Darrah
    • "I really liked the New Urbanism article. I think it did a good job of highlighting the assets of small towns. You don’t have to be Chicago or New York to have a cool and fun downtown experience. Fort Wayne, Van Wert and other unmentioned towns like Wabash and Decatur have really cool and unique things to do in their downtowns. I like the imagery, too, particularity the alley in Van Wert."
