Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - There's a new leader on board at the Downtown Improvement District in Fort Wayne.

Former County Commissioner Bill Brown is replacing former "DID" President Rich Davis, who'd served in the post since 2008 and submitted his resignation after heavy criticism from members of city council.

The Downtown Improvement District was created to promote, beautify and develop downtown Fort Wayne.

City council had criticized Davis's low profile in the community and the group's apparent lack of drive.

Brown is running for Allen County Council in November, and will serve as interim director until a permanent replacement is hired, perhaps by the end of the year.
