Council agrees to give $3 million to USF project

The Fort Wayne City Council agreed Tuesday to invest $3 million in Legacy money in the University of Saint Francis' new downtown campus.

The university's $12.3 million project includes renovating two historic buildings – the former Chamber of Commerce, 826 Ewing St., and the former Scottish Rite Center, now the University of Saint Francis Performing Arts Center at 431 W. Berry St.
