FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - A search is about to begin for an architectural and engineering firm to begin designing a proposed arena for downtown Fort Wayne.

The Allen County-Fort Wayne Capital Improvement Board of Managers announced Thursday it is requesting proposals for designs and cost estimates. It plans to select a firm by Aug. 1.

Last month, at the request of the city of Fort Wayne and the Allen County Board of Commissioners, the CIB agreed to lead and fund the proposal process. The CIB has established a study committee to oversee the process and will evaluate responses to the request for proposals and make a recommendation to the CIB.
