City, County Unveil Community Survey

1/30/2013
City Communications | (316) 268-4351

Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer, Sedgwick County Commissioner Dave Unruh and other government and academic leaders held a Tuesday morning news conference to encourage area residents to participate in a new community engagement and planning process to help shape the future of the Wichita area.

Brewer and Unruh were joined by Wichita State University officials in announcing the release of a community survey that, at a time of fiscal challenges for local governments, seeks feedback on community infrastructure, quality of life, economic development and other priorities through 2035. The survey, which is part of a comprehensive community plan required by the state, will be mailed this week to 25,000 randomly selected registered voters.

“I know we’re sending out 25,000 surveys and I would love to see all 25,000 returned,” Unruh said. Brewer, who referenced the upcoming survey in his annual State of the City Address on Tuesday, added: “We need the public’s help. Together, we must make important decisions. As I said last night, much is at stake for current and future generations. Our residents own more than $7 billion in City-County infrastructure that we must protect, preserve and build on.”

The comprehensive community plan – known as “CommunityInvestmentsPlan … a Framework for the Future” – focuses on areas such as public transportation; water, sewer and stormwater improvements; cultural, recreation and parks amenities; and economic development including creating and retaining jobs. For more information about the plan, please visit www.communityinvestmentsplan.org or www.wichita.gov or contact Planner and Project Leader Dave Barber at dbarber@wichita.gov or 316-268-4490.
