What Was the Outcome of the Founders Memorial Hall Meeting?

June 16, 2011

About 40 people showed up for the neighborhood meeting with a Taylor representative, attorney Jon Bomberger, Monday night. Several influential citizens of Fort Wayne were in attendance.

There were a couple folks who thought that Founders Memorial should come down. But the vast majority of those attending want Taylor to investigate whether it would be cheaper to track historical insurance policies for the building and remediate the site. It can be done… but a look into the costs using experts in the field hadn’t yet begun.

Representatives from ARCH, Friends of the Parks, Councilman John Shoaff and candidate Geoff Paddock were in attendance as well as leadership from surrounding neighborhoods. Importantly, regular neighbors were there, too. Thank you to all!

Taylor’s lawyer will tell university leadership about the experts from ARCH and SESCO. Hopefully, Taylor will investigate its options. If we hear anything else, we will relay the information here.
