In late 2015 and early 2016, the City and County respectively adopted a new joint comprehensive Plan called the Community Investments Plan 2015-2035. This Plan contains a new Wichita Urban Infill Strategy intended to encourage population and employment growth, residential and commercial development and reinvestment in the older mature neighborhoods of Wichita. To this end, the City has begun a multi-year effort to move forward with implementation of the:

  • Wichita Urban Infill Strategy contained in the Community Investments Plan 2015-2035;
  • Strategic actions contained in the Community Building Blocks Infill Development Strategies...Wichita, Kansas, Next Steps Memorandum, April 8, 2016.

A Wichita Urban Infill Advisory Committee has been created to provide neighborhood and community perspective/feedback on the City's urban infill development efforts. The Advisory Committee will receive technical support and guidance from a Staff Project Team. This Team will also initiate those city staffing actions necessary and associated with the implementation of the urban infill implementation action priorities.
