The six members are split evenly between appointees from the Wichita City Council and Board of the Sedgwick County Commission, plus the Vice Chairman of the MAPC. The purpose of the Advance Plans Committee is to provide guidance to the Metropolitan Area Planning Department (MAPD) staff in developing, formulating and considering projections, forecasts, goals and objectives, proposals, plans and policies that affect the long term physical, social and economic character of the planning area.
