County commissioners to consider proposed IU Health facility Friday
ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA) - Allen County commissioners are set to consider the proposal to bring a major IU Health facility to undeveloped land near the intersection of I-69 and Lower Huntington Road during its Friday meeting.
It’s a proposal that has drawn some opposition from area residents who are concerned about the impact of a full-scale hospital on a largely rural part of the county. Five of them spoke in opposition at a January plan commission hearing, where the petition to rezone passed with seven in favor and one abstention.
Final approval, however, rests with the commissioners. They’ll meet in the Council Chambers room at Citizens Square at 10 a.m. Friday, April 15. IU Health has plans to build out a 137-acre healthcare campus, creating a centerpiece to its growing list of facilities around Fort Wayne.
