The Northeastern Indiana Regional Coordinating Council is the agency designated by the Governor to perform general purpose planning on a regional basis for Adams, Allen, DeKalb, and Wells Counties. NIRCC coordinates with other planning efforts to maximize benefits to the respective communities. In addition, NIRCC provides regional transportation planning services for both rural and urban communities within its jurisdiction. Finally, NIRCC is heavily involved in various community development programs, both in the planning and implementation stages.
The Director of NIRCC will provide an overview and then be open for serious give and take regarding virtually all transportation planning and priorities from now through 30 years into the future. NIRCC has a history of following through on properly researched suggestions. They tend to effectively navigate political factors, various trends and fads, and funding sources.

TekVenture’s new location and expanded areas of interest.
March 21, 2019, at 1550 Griffin Street, near the Hosey Dam.
Starting time will probably be 6:30 or 7:00 pm.
TekVenture has steadily upsized and updated since its start in a trailer downtown. Current plans for March 21 call for TekVenture’s specialists to demonstrate the work areas and guidance which are available to young people and adults. A few simple projects may be available to make during our tour.
Most of TekVenture is intended for all ages. Expansions include theater, woodworking, and an active Fort Wayne Inventors Club. The FW Inventors Club is also potentially helpful if interested in patent law.
