Economic Development staff work closely with their colleagues on the land use planning staff in coordinating and planning for the location or expansion of businesses in the county. Economic Development staff collaborate with local and state partners such as the City of Fort Wayne, Greater Fort Wayne, Inc., WorkOne Northeast, and the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership in the marketing of Allen County to new and existing businesses.
