Fort Wayne nonprofit considers buying historic newspaper building in another county to convert to housing for low-income seniors.
"A Fort Wayne-based nonprofit agency is pursuing the purchase of the downtown building housing The Elkhart Truth so it can be converted into housing for the elderly. The plans still aren’t definite — SCAN Inc., the would-be buyer, is awaiting word on whether it qualifies for federal housing credits to help finance the project. But at least one hurdle disappeared with the decision Thursday, Feb. 12, when the Elkhart Board of Zoning Appeals granted a zoning variance that allows the proposal to proceed." -- Tim Vandenack, the Elkhart (IN) Truth
