FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Fort Wayne International Airport may have a 20-year master plan but officials want to make sure they're working with county planning officials as they move forward.

Airport administrators and the county planning department are formulating a land use development plan that would determine acceptable uses and zoning for Smith Field and the International Airport.

Airport Administrator Scott Hinderman says, ‘We want to work with them to where we have a product that's usable. It meets their requirements and our requirements, so both of us can have a product that is in fact usable.”

The height of buildings and anything that might attract birds to the area are just two issues that could impact the function of the airports.
