The City of Wichita is hosting two public events which are scheduled for Saturday, April 21:
Plates for Parks Bill Signing
Hampton Inn Northwest lobby, 10047 W. 29th St. N.
- 1:30 p.m. Mingle with refreshments
- 2 p.m. Governor Jeff Colyer will sign HB2599, the Plates For Parks license plate bill, into law.
This bill will allow the sale of a specialty license plate bearing the Wichita city flag. Proceeds from the plate, an annual $50 per plate royalty fee, will go towards improving the City-owned parks.
Pracht Wetlands Park groundbreaking
The event will take place just east of the Hampton Inn Northwest, 10047 W. 29th St. N.
- Immediately following the Plates for Parks bill signing, there will be a groundbreaking ceremony for nearly $2 million in improvements at the Pracht Wetlands Park (formerly Cadillac Lake). The work is scheduled to begin within the next month.
If it is raining, there will be a ceremonial groundbreaking inside the hotel lobby. Guests may use the Hampton Inn parking lot for both events.
