Rezoning for IU Health facility unanimously approved by commissioners
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - Allen County commissioners have passed a rezoning measure 3-0, clearing the way for construction of an IU Health campus off Lower Huntington Road and just west of I-69.
The vote on Friday followed the recommendation of the Allen County Plan Commission earlier this year. It allows IU Health to build out a 137-acre area of land that would become its centerpiece medical facility in northeastern Indiana.
Some area residents have opposed the development, which is in a rural part of southern Allen County, along Ernst Road. Preliminary construction is already underway at the site.
