Q&A With Mark Becker

A DFWB Exclusive

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Fort Wayne Deputy Mayor Mark Becker in his office at the top of the City County Building. While Mayor Graham Richard has been the frontman and lead salesman for Harrison Square, Mark has been working on the details and finer points of the Harrison Square project, and thus is the man best suited to answer our questions.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The purpose of Harrison Square and its use throughout the year
  • Financial topics such as the use of TIF and CRED districts
  • Retail opportunities and the downtown housing market
  • Future downtown developments
  • Parking issues and parking garage financing
  • City Council approval process
