The Plan Steering Committee will take all of the community engagement feedback received over the last year and begin to develop a recommended draft Community Investments Plan. A final round of community engagement will occur in early 2015 to receive feedback and comments on the recommended plan.
There is a long legacy of comprehensive planning in this community dating back to the 1920’s. Wichita and Sedgwick County have had a joint comprehensive plan since the early 1960’s. The current Wichita-Sedgwick County Metropolitan Area Comprehensive Plan was last developed in the early 1990’s. The comprehensive plan is intended to provide long-term community vision and policy direction related to public investments that support future community growth, development, economic vitality and quality of life. The comprehensive plan is required by Kansas Statutes to have land use, transportation and facilities elements. The State of Kansas requires a comprehensive plan to guide public infrastructure and facility investments identified in the city and county capital improvement programs, and to authorize city and county subdivision approval authority associated with land development.
