Electric Works and Fort Wayne featured on The Atlantic

Authors Jim and Deborah Fallows toured Electric Works recently as part of a broader northern Indiana tour he was conducting on a series of stories for The Atlantic magazine. They’re writing about how towns and cities in the industrial Midwest are reinventing themselves.

One of Fallows’ takeaways from the visit was breadth and depth of civic-engagement. “The funding of this project is an epitome of ‘public-private partnership’—a phrase that…is seen in Washington as a euphemism for ‘payoffs’ or ‘log-rolling,’ but at the local level appears to be a key ingredient in getting things done.”
