City of Fort Wayne Press Release

September 15, 2008

Fort Wayne, Ind. - Today, Mayor Tom Henry announced a long-awaited project is moving forward and will bring more than $14.1 million in private investment to the community.

"Our community has recognized for years the need for additional ice space to meet the needs of youth and adult hockey leagues, figure skaters and recreational skating. I am proud today to announce that this project, with its intention to bring a first-class facility Fort Wayne, gives us a chance to fill that need for the region," said Mayor Henry.

A local development group, 3 Sheets Development, LLC, submitted plans today to develop 22 acres of land on Lima and Wells Streets, across from Glenbrook Commons. The first parcel to be developed will be a facility with three sheets of ice that the group calls "Spiece on Ice, a reference to the successful basketball center located just a mile north on Lima, to indicate the sort of regional draw they expect to bring to the facility, as hockey leagues from several states will hold tournaments and events there.
