Ossian is looking to the future and using a park to put its plans into drive.

Members of Ossian Revitalization and the Ossian Town Council teamed to hire HPG Network, a Fort Wayne consulting group, to study how to make Ossian a better place to work and live. The committee and the town agreed to pay HPGN $44,500. That includes $10,000 of the town's County Economic Development Income Tax funds and $33,500 of funds raised privately by Revitalization.

Consulting firm High Performance Government looked at a lot of features of Ossian when trying to map out future revitalization plans, said HPG representative Heather Presley Cowan Wednesday night.

But make no doubt about it, Presley Cowan stressed, AWM Park is the crown jewel.

Ryan Chasey, Presley Cowan and Zach Benedict of MKM Architects, again stressed -as they did at a meeting earlier this year - that the park needs to be looked upon as an opportunity to not only attract people to live in Ossian , but to attract people in the region to come to Ossian.

One idea that eventually became a Vision 2020 priority was Streamlined Permitting. The ROC selected Streamlined Permitting because it believes improving the permitting systems across jurisdictions will encourage greater economic growth in Northeast Indiana. Streamlined permitting processes will make it easier for businesses to obtain appropriate permits to build and expand in the region.
